RLC Concert Band, Choir calling for local musicians

Two Rend Lake College music ensembles are calling for talented musicians to join them for the 2016-2017 academic year. The Concert Band and Concert Choir are tuition free and registering now.

Concert Choir (MUSI 1159), under the direction of Sara Alstat, RLC Music Associate Professor, is a vocal ensemble that performs in concerts and at college functions throughout the semester. The course is designed to provide a performing outlet for talented college musicians. The choir rehearses from 12 – 12:50 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in the Learning Resource Center (LRC).

The Concert Band (MUSI 1161) provides a playing outlet for experienced band musicians and includes at least one concert per semester. The band rehearses from 11 – 11:50 a.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in the LRC.

Both courses are available to any student or community member. If you don’t have an instrument for the band – don’t worry – RLC has a number of instruments for students to use. This semester, the Fall Concert is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17 in the RLC Theatre.

Participants must be over the age of 16, and one credit hour can be earned for each ensemble. For more information about the Concert Band or Concert Choir, contact Sara Alstat at [email protected] or 618-201-2044.
