Application deadline for KCC Music Scholarships is March 2

The final application deadline for individuals interested in applying for a Kellogg Community College Music Scholarship for the 2015-16 academic year is 5 p.m. Monday, March 2.

KCC Music Scholarships vary in size from $100 to $500 per semester for selected students and are available for current KCC students and high school seniors planning to study at the College who exhibit outstanding vocal or instrumental promise.

The application process for students or potential students vying for the scholarships culminates in an audition to be scheduled with the applicant no later than Friday, March 6, in the Kellogg Room of the Mawby Center (the Miller College building) on KCC’s campus at 450 North Ave., Battle Creek.

Individuals interested in applying for a KCC Music Scholarship should prepare the following in advance of their audition:

Vocalists: Vocalist applicants for a KCC Music Scholarship should prepare two musical selections of contrasting style, language and period. One must be of the classical repertoire (aria, Italian art song, lieder or chanson) performed by memory with an accompanist.
Instrumentalists: Instrumentalist applicants for a KCC Music Scholarship should prepare two contrasting solo pieces, one a fast and technical composition and the second a slower and more expressive composition.
Pianists: Pianist applicants for a KCC Music Scholarship should prepare two works from memory that represent contrasting periods and styles of music.

KCC Piano Concert Series continues March 1 with Faculty Artist Recital

Kellogg Community College’s Piano Concert Series continues with a Faculty Artist Recital featuring adjunct KCC instructor and pianist Kathy Cary in March.

Cary will begin her recital at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 1, at the Binda Performing Arts Center on KCC’s campus at 450 North Ave., Battle Creek. The event is free and open to the public, with a free-will offering collected to benefit music programming for KCC students.

Cary has been the organist and pianist at First United Methodist Church in Sturgis since 1982 and has instructed organ and piano classes at KCC since 2002, serving as accompanist for the College’s Branch County Community Chorus from 2002 through 2012. She currently sings in the College’s choirs and is the featured faculty organist for the KCC Choral Union’s concert tours, which included international appearances in Ireland in 2012 and Italy in 2014.

Works presented by Cary during the recital will include pieces by Ludwig van Beethoven, Frederic Chopin, Claude Debussy, Hans Engelmann, Carl Koelling, Edward MacDowell, and Charles G. Love and Lorena A. Hogue Love, the latter a pair of Michigan composers who were also Cary’s grandparents.

The concert continues a series of inaugural arts and cultural events held in the College’s newly renovated Binda Performing Arts Center since the completion of a $4.1 million renovation project at the facility last October. Additional upcoming events at the center include a Piano Concert Series Guest Artist Recital featuring international pianists Wendy Wan-Hsing Chu and Yu-Hsuan Yang beginning at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 22; and KCC’s spring musical production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s “The Pirates of Penzance,” opening March 20.

For more information about the March 1 recital, contact Dr. Gerald Blanchard, vocal music director and music coordinator at KCC, at blanchardg@kellogg.edu or 269-965-3931 ext. 2566.
