Kellogg Community College Individualized Lesson Program music students will display their talents during a pair of recitals at 1 p.m. Wednesdays, April 10 and 17.
The recitals are part of the Davidson Student Recital Series and will be performed in the auditorium of the College’s Davidson Visual and Performing Arts Center, 450 North Ave. They are free and open to the public.
Dr. Gerald Blanchard, vocal music professor at KCC and coordinator of the Individualized Lesson Program, said each recital will include a unique program with the KCC students performing solos that showcase their vocal and instrumental talents.
“We are very pleased that we can showcase some of our most talented music students in these concerts,” Blanchard said.
In addition to individualized voice and instrumental lessons and student recitals, KCC’s vocal arts area offers master classes, a yearly opera workshop and choral opportunities including the Kellogg Singers, the Branch County Community Chorus, Concentus Vocal Ensemble and the Choral Union Touring Choir.
The Davidson Student Recital Series marks the continuation of a busy spring for vocal arts at the college. The Kellogg Singers performed as the featured choral group during a morning worship service at Wakeshma Community Church on March 17, and the area hosted internationally renowned pianist Christopher Atzinger for a Guest Artist Master Class and Recital event at the college on March 27.
Looking forward, KCC singers will present their annual Singing in the Spring choral series event – “I, Too, Sing America” – on April 14, and will perform during the Michigan Historical Marker Dedication Ceremony on KCC’s North Avenue campus on April 28.
