Collection Historical Note

The Prairie Ensemble was founded in 1996 in Urbana-Champaign by Kevin Kelly. Kelly's goal for the small orchestra was to make music approachable and informal to a wider audience in Central Illinois by performing new and popular music, performing in informal attire, and performing in several locale indoor and outdoor venues. Players within the ensemble were drawn from the community and ranged from professional musicians, gifted amateurs, undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Illinois, and faculty of the University of Illinois. The Praire Ensemble was disbanded in 2015.

Biographical Note

Kevin Kelly holds bachelors degrees in English and music history and criticism from Northwestern University and masters degrees in orchestral and choral conducting from the University of Illinois. He has sung with several professional choral ensembles in Chicago, including the Chicago Symphony Chorus, the Grant Park Symphony Chorus, The City Musick, Basically Bach and His Majesties Clerkes (now Bella Voce). He has studied conducting with Kenneth Kiesler, Paul Vermel, Victor Yampolsky, Harold Farberman, Kirk Trevor and Emil Simon.
