The KSC Concert Band is a performing ensemble studying music written for winds, brass, percussion, and wind-band ensembles. The ensemble also serves the needs of music students as a laboratory ensemble. At various times, students from both within and outside the ensemble will be given the opportunity to synthesize material that is learned in their courses in conducting, arranging, and composition. The band often provides services to the college community, including performances at campus ceremonies and other events.
