The Kellogg Community College Concert Band will hold its annual holiday concert this week on campus in Battle Creek.

The concert event, titled “Christmas Around the World,” will begin at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 4, at the Binda Performing Arts Center, 450 North Ave. in Battle Creek. The event is free and open to the public, though a freewill donation will be collected to support future arts initiatives at the College.

“The concert will feature a wide variety of festive favorites among some wonderful surprises,” Dr. Gerald Case-Blanchard, director of vocal music and music area coordinator at KCC, said. “This is a fun, family-friendly musical event.”

More than two dozen band members under the direction of KCC Concert Band Director Christopher Momcilovich will perform holiday favorites including:

  • “Celtic Carol,” arranged by Robert W. Smith
  • “Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24,” arranged by Bob Phillips and George Megaw
  • “A Christmas Festival,” by Leroy Anderson
  • “Christmas Variants,” arranged by Elliot Del Borgo
