Applied studies students demonstrate their talent and preview some of the literature they have been studying throughout each semester. Recitals last from 30-40 minutes, are free and open to the public and have absolutely no calories.

The walkways and halls on the Sedalia campus come alive with the sights and sounds of the season when the SFCC Foundation hosts this annual community event featuring performances by SFCC students, area schools and community groups.

March 7 and 8, 7:30 p.m.

From the splendid solemnity of the Renaissance to the swinging syncopation of the Big Band era, concert goers will be delighted with the variety of music presented by the SFCC ensembles: the Jazz and Chamber choirs and Jazz Runners band. Always a crowd pleaser, this concert features traditional and not so traditional musical offerings and a few surprises along the way!

The final concert of the academic year provides SFCC music students the opportunity to showcase their talents and acquired musical skills to the community as they reflect on the accumulated musical knowledge of the semester.
