RLC’s tuition-free Concert Band and Choir seeking musicians

Talented performers are needed in Rend Lake College’s Fall 2017 Concert Band and Concert Choir. The two ensembles are tuition free, and are the perfect elective for music and instrumental majors, as well as any students interested in performing on stage.

Under the director of Sara Alstat, RLC Music Associate Professor, the Concert Choir (MUSI 1159) 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 musicians. The choir rehearses from 12 – 12:50 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in the Learning Resource Center (LRC), Room 107.

Also under Alstat, 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, also in the LRC, Room 107. This semester, students will perform at the Fall Concert, set for 7 p.m. Thursday, November 9 in the RLC Theatre.

Both courses are available to any student or community member over the age of 16. If you don’t have an instrument for the band – don’t worry – RLC has a number of instruments for students to use. One credit hour can be earned for each ensemble.

Alstat, also a faculty advisor, is available to help students schedule the ensemble electives this summer. For more information about the Concert Band or Concert Choir, contact Alstat at [email protected] or 618-201-2044.
