Since 1968, the Kaskaskia College Music Department has had a thriving performance program encompassing ensembles such as concert band, concert choir, chamber singers, madrigal singers, jazz choir, student jazz bands & jazz ensembles, pep-band, percussion ensemble, drumline, and several big band jazz bands. Other performance opportunities also exist within the department.
The music department offers its students a strong background in music theory, ear-training, piano, and composition as well as performance. With smaller class sizes and a commitment to quality, the Kaskaskia College Music Department is an excellent way to begin your musical journey.
