Featured Musicians 3

Cindi (Nobbs) Klingel was an instructor of technology at Kellogg Community College. She holds a master’s degree in Computer Science from Western Michigan University, but her first love is music. Her bachelor’s degree, also from WMU, is in music, where her instrument was piano. She is a graduate of Marshall High School where she played viola in the orchestra and sang in/accompanied the Women’s Ensemble and Marshall Singers. She taught piano to students in the Marshall area for over 20 years and was the organist at her church for 3 years. Cindi has accompanied Marshall High and Middle School students at Solo and Ensemble festivals for 36 years. She currently directs the handbell choir at her church, where she has served in this capacity for 28 years. In the early ‘90s John Carroll invited Cindi to join the band to play mallet parts (instruments in the percussion section that are arranged like a keyboard). It has been one of the highlights of her summers ever since. As Cindi frequently states, “They give me mallets and they want me to hit things! That’s pretty tough to beat.”
