Instrumental Music @ KCC

KCC Jazz BandWelcome to the instrumental music area at Kellogg Community College.

The KCC Instrumental Area offers a variety of performing opportunities for those interested in instrumental music. Our ensembles perform both on and off campus, including a recent presentation at the Elmhurst Jazz Festival where they played to much acclaim.  Other performances have included appearances at the annual Red Cedar Band Festival in Lansing, community concerts and other special events.

KCC music ensembles are open to students and community musicians. We encourage anyone interested in participating in any of our ensembles to please contact the Arts and Communication Department for additional information and registration details.  You may reach the department by calling 269-965-3931 ext. 2554 or by emailing the Music Area coordinator, Dr. Gerald Blanchard, at blanchardg@Kellogg.edu.
