Veteran and volunteer Ken Looney can be seen all over Frisco at various arts and veterans events with his infectious smile and endless energy! He was featured in the most recent Frisco Enterprise, representing Frisco Arts with one of his favorite instruments, the guitar.
Ken received his BBA in Accounting and Economics from Midwestern University after serving three years in the Army. He and his beautiful wife Dona have called Frisco home since 1976. He worked for Arco Oil and Gas Company for 28 years and retired as an Accounting Manager.
Ken’s musical journey began with his first guitar at age 6 and piano at age 7. While in Midland, Ken studied voice under Vivian Moss, was a member of the St. Luke’s UMC Chancel Choir, UTPB University Singers show choir, and the Midland Odessa Symphony and Chorale. Closer to home, Ken was one of the founding members of the Frisco Community Theater and currently serves as the Director of Finance and Board Treasurer for Frisco Arts.
Music and the arts are Ken’s passion. “The Frisco Association for the Arts is a force of change in this city, I am proud to be a part of it!” says Ken. We are grateful to have a strong volunteer like Ken serving with us!
