Performance will take place in Halling Recital Hall.
Minnesota State University, Mankato Department of Music News Release, 3-10-2015
Mankato, Minn. – The newly formed Minnesota State Mankato Community Orchestra will perform Tuesday, March 24 at 7:30 p.m. in the Elias J. Halling Recital Hall of the Earley Center for Performing Arts, 320 Maywood Ave.
Orchestra Director Dr. Joseph Rodgers has transformed this year’s university orchestra. The orchestra has invited area community members to join the former University Orchestra and perform with university student musicians. The orchestra has quadrupled in size and offers an abundance of new opportunities for both students and community members. Rodgers says, “ I sincerely believe that the new performing group gives students experience getting to know community members as well as learning from them.”
Many of the community members playing in the Minnesota State Mankato Community Orchestra also perform or have performed with the Mankato Symphony Orchestra.
Concert admission is $9; $7 for students with a valid MavCard. Discount tickets are available online for University students. Those who wish to purchase tickets online should go to www.mnsu.edu/music. For more information, call the Performance Series office, 507-389-5549.
