Become a Supporter Of The Performance Series

The Minnesota State Mankato Music Performance Series has been an annual event for sixteen years and continues to grow each year thanks in part to people like you. Our guest artist series is a strong and vital part of our offerings featuring outstanding performers/educators that present master classes, clinics and workshops for regional elementary through high school participants and our college students. The series offers music representatives of many different genres and cultural perspectives.

The series' goal is not solely to entertain, but to educate, challenge and inspire. Help us continue this tradition with your financial support.

Performance Series events are made possible through gifts and grants from the Nadine B. Andreas Endowment, the Bunny Just Piano Festival Endowment, the NorAM/Minnegasco Foundation, Prairie Ecology Bus Incorporated, the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council from appropriations by the Minnesota State Legislature, and is funded, in part, by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.

If you would like information on becoming a supporter of the Minnesota State University Performance Series, please contact Dale Haefner at 507-389-5549.
