The Music Center is a unique blending of performance and educational opportunities into one musical family.  At The Music Center you can participate in choirs, take lessons and classes, and attend symphony concerts through one organization.  Founded in 2000, this was the ultimate artistic collaboration, ensuring the sustainability of the arts in Calhoun County for generations to come.


The activities of the various programs include: local concert series encompassing both orchestral and choral performance; outreach programs for schools in the Battle Creek and surrounding communities; individual instrumental and vocal instruction; group lessons in music and dance; choral training; performance tours; and several special events and fundraisers throughout the year.


The Music Center serves all of Calhoun County, as well as portions of Branch, Eaton, Hillsdale, Jackson, and Kalamazoo counties. Spanning the cultural and economic spectrum, the Music Center provides programs for every stage of life.
