A throwback musical moment

A Throwback musical moment!

This was Dr. Blanchard’s first year (2004) as Director of Vocal Music at Kellogg Community College. In this photo the choir was rehearsing Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass, (a work which will be presented by the KCC Choral Union this coming Spring). The photo was taken during the rehearsal at First Presbyterian Church of Lansing Michigan in 2004.

Memories and special musical moments!

Share your thoughts!

Which of the five options would you be most interested in participating if offered at KCC?

1. A 6-8 voiced vocal Jazz ensemble

2. A madrigal choir which specialized in performance of Renaissance and Baroque repertoire

3. A gospel choir which focuses on the traditional and contemporary repertoire of the African American choral traditions.

4. An all male chorus which would perform a variety of repertoire including those associated with the Barbershop traditions

5. An all female chorus that specializes in music designed for the treble voice with an emphasis placed on contemporary world and classical styles.

Please feel free to share your thoughts, but I’m very interested in knowing your preference for a new vocal ensemble at KCC.

BRANCH COUNTY COMMUNITY CHORUS ACCEPTING NEW MEMBERS

August 20, 2014 · by kelloggcommunitycollege · in Community, News Releases
Kellogg Community College’s Branch County Community Chorus is accepting members for the 2014-15 performance season.
No auditions are required to join the BCCC, but members must register for the Community Chorus course MUSI 104 (for credit) or MUSI C104 (non-credit) prior to the group’s first rehearsal at an open house reception at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 2, at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 27 E. Chicago St., Coldwater.
Rehearsals will be held at St. Mark’s from 6:30 to 9 p.m. every Tuesday through May.
Those who wish to join the BCCC will have a brief vocal placement assessment and interview with Dr. Gerald Blanchard, vocal music director at KCC, prior to the start of the rehearsal. Members must have a basic ability to match pitches and read musical notation.
For the upcoming season, Blanchard said all vocal parts are needed, but especially tenors and basses.
“If you are passionate about singing and want to join a group that embodies joy of spirit and a love for the vocal arts, then the Branch County Community Chorus is for you,” Blanchard said.
The choir’s 2014-15 concert season will include performances of Handel’s “Messiah,” Menotti’s Christmas opera “Amahl and the Night Visitors,” Haydn’s “Lord Nelson Mass” and Gilbert and Sullivan’s “The Pirates of Penzance.”
