 The community is invited to have fun and create some good vibrations during a “Virtual Drum Circle” on Friday, May 1.
The free event will be online and live over Zoom®.  It is being offered by the Kankakee Community College Continuing Education and Career Services Department.

“If you don’t have a drum at home, you can use your desktop, a pan or even a small bottle with coins as a rattle!” said Dawn Wrobel, the course leader.  She will lead participants through several rounds of drumming/percussion. In addition to offering this drum-related course, Wrobel is a part-time teacher for KCC, an experienced crafter and pet enthusiast.

The class meets Friday, May 1, from 7:30-8:30 p.m. To register online, visit, sign up or login, then select the course, click on the date and add it to your cart. Within the cart, checkout. To register by phone, or for more information, phone 815-802-8207 and leave a message. A staff person will return the call within one business day.

After registering, participants will receive the link and password for the class. This course does not award college credit.
