Are you still considering what to take this semester? If so, please check out the following musical possibilities at KCC:

Kellogg Singers (MUSI 105/C)

Kellogg Singers
~This is a non-auditioned, mixed ensemble based out of the Davidson Building on the main KCC campus. The Kellogg Singers prepare high level choral music for performances on the KCC campus and in the community.
An effort is made to expose the members to “need to know songs” from every style in choral music repertoire. The music repertoire ranges from Renaissance Madrigals to Spirituals, to Baroque masterworks to music of living composers, and everything in between will be presented in concert.

Everyone is welcome in this ensemble which can be taken for enrichment as well as for credit.

Director: Dr. Gerald J. Blanchard

Accompanist: Nancy Brown

Branch County Community Chorus (MUSI 104/C)

BCCC is a non-auditioned, mixed ensemble whose members are drawn from Coldwater and the surrounding area. This ensemble seeks to explore repertoire not accessible to the average church choir. A wide range of choral music is prepared for performance in the Branch County area and beyond.

If you enjoy singing and are looking for a congenial atmosphere to experience challenging choral literature this is the choir for you! Everyone is welcome in this ensemble which can be taken for enrichment or for academic credit. You may register online or visit the Grahl Center to register.

Director: Dr. Gerald J. Blanchard

Accompanist: Nancy Brown
