Kathy Mancinelli

Adjunct Instructor

I am currently the Director of Choral Music at Columbia Basin College leading concert choir, chamber choir, the jazz ensemble Freeform as well as piano to 24 students each quarter. I have been an adjunct instructor at CBC since 2001. I was also the choral director at Lower Columbia Community College where I directed the jazz choir, community choir and taught music in the classroom for education majors.

Prior to teaching at the community college level, I taught K-12 throughout the 1990’s. I taught choirs and general music at the Granite Falls School District, middle school choirs in the Pasco School District and high school choirs in the Kennewick School District where I opened Southridge High School.

I am an adjudicator and clinician at choral and jazz events throughout the Pacific Northwest and enjoy working with middle school and high school ensembles at every level.
