Future Uncertain for Brass Band of Battle Creek
W.K. Kellogg Foundation has contributed $2.2-million to organization since 1995
The future of the Brass Band of Battle Creek is uncertain as a key grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation ends in June. The funding covers about one-third of the band's budget and Jennifer Rupp, executive director for the Brass Band, said if the funding is not renewed the band could face its demise after 25 years of performances.
