For those looking to be involved in music this semester, or anyone who loves music, Salt Lake Community College’s Instrumental Music Club is the place for all music enthusiasts.
Students can join this club if they are looking for fellow musicians to interact with and also be involved in SLCC’s growing musical community.
“The club is for any musicians that are at SLCC who are not in the music program,” says Candido Abeyta, music major at SLCC and president of the instrument music club. “This gives other musicians a chance to get together and meet, play gigs and learn about other musical interests.”
This club was established a year ago and Abeyta has been there from the start. As president, he has helped the club grow by spreading the word about the music programs at SLCC.
“I’m trying to do what I can do make it more of a present program,” says Abeyta. “Not many people know about the music program at SLCC. “
Currently, there are about 40 students in the club, but Abeyta hopes that it keeps growing and that more students come and share their love for music.
“A lot of people that join the club come from different musical backgrounds,” says Abeyta. “It’s interesting to get them all together to see what they can create.”
Apart from sharing in musical interest, the club also announces any events or gigs that students can get involved in. The club also plays at SLCC events throughout the semester.
“We play for a lot of the private events for SLCC,” says Abeyta. “We get asked specifically to come play for the events.”
The Instrumental club meets every Tuesday and Thursday at 3 p.m. in room W252 at the South City Campus.
