All music clubs are located at the Ammerman (Selden) campus, except for the Music Society (Grant campus) and Music Club (Eastern campus). These are student-run organizations and are open to all members of the SCCC community regardless of major.


Ammerman A Cappella is a club for students interested in singing a cappella music. Within this club, there are three a cappella groups: Do Re Men (all male), Fa Sol Ladies (all female), and Third Inversion (male and female). Do Re Men and Fa Sol Ladies require an audition and Third Inversion is open to any student without an audition. The a cappella groups sing vocal music in a variety of styles. Opportunities exist to create original a cappella arrangements as well.

This club promotes interest in the guitar and other fretted instruments across all genres and styles of music. Guitarists (at any level) can participate in discussions, music making, and socializing with other musicians at SCCC. Through organized events and activities, the Guitar Society hopes to provide a positive musical experience for all students interested in the guitar.

Faculty advisor: Prof. James Erickson

The purpose of this club is to help musicians (at any level) expand their musical boundaries, whether that be learning how to play those first few scales and chords, or learn a new instrument/style altogether. Every participant will have the opportunity to teach his/her own style as well as learn more from others that have different experiences. Everyone should have an opportunity to create his/her own music. This club hopes to help give the gift of creation and expression through a musical instrument.

The SCCC Orchestra Club’s mission is to support and appreciate orchestra music in all of its forms.  To this end, the Orchestra Club attends one or more concerts each semester of professional symphonic orchestras. Especially popular are trips to Manhattan to hear the New York Philharmonic, one of the world’s greatest and historically significant orchestras. Club members will often present a pre-concert lecture, thus helping all who attend appreciate and better understand the music they will hear.

The mission of the Opera Club is to provide students with the opportunity to explore their interest in opera or to experience opera for the first time. Each semester, the club attends a performance at the Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center.
