After our inaugural "Kalamazoo In Tune Community Day" this summer at Arcadia Elementary, we are excited to offer our next musical gathering! And what could be more fun than a Halloween Spooktacular?
KKIT Community Days, hosted by the Kalamazoo Kids In Tune program, are an opportunity for musicians of all levels and ages to come together and enjoy making music in a symphonic setting. At our first event, our guests included members of the K-Philharmonia, Kalamazoo Concert Band, KJSO, Bronco Marching Band, WMU Symphony Orchestra, Crescendo Academy, and Suzuki Academy of Kalamazoo. We welcome all current, former, and aspiring band and orchestra musicians to sign up! Whether you are actively performing, or looking for a good reason to dust off your instrument, we hope you will join us for a fun evening of music-making with the students of Kalamazoo Kids In Tune and Orchestra Rouh!
Feel free to join the Halloween fun and come in costume. (Optional.)

(For those who can't leave work early, we still welcome you to join us and will help you find a place when you arrive.)
STEP 1: RSVP! Complete the form below to let us know you are coming and what band/orchestra instrument you play.
STEP 2: Download your music! After you register, we'll email you a link to our music so you can download the part that works best for you. Our spooky repertoire will include Sunrise Fanfare from Also Sprach Zarathustra (also known as the theme from 2001 A Space Odyssey), In the Hall of the Mountain King, a reprise of our summer themes from The Planets, Ghostbusters, and more.
Note: At KKIT we choose big orchestral themes and arrange them with key signatures, orchestrations, and judicious edits to preserve all the power and drama but to make them playable by instrumentalists of all levels.
Parts can also be picked up from the KSO office if you aren’t able to print, and will be available on site on the day of the event if you’re cool with sight-reading.
We can’t wait to see you on October 26!
