Community Performing Arts

Kellogg Community College offers opportunities for community members interested in the arts. The college is home to several residential community choirs and bands that are open to the public for membership, including the Branch County Community Chorus and the KCC Jazz Band, the CMS Community Band, Cereal City Concert Band, Kellogg Singers, KCC Opera Workshop Ensemble Chorus and much more. In the area of the dramatic arts, opportunities are equally plentiful through the active theatre program which hosts two major community theater productions each year with auditions for parts that are open to KCC students and community members alike. Additionally, most KCC music and theater productions are open to the public and offer free admission.
