March 21: University Orchestra Performance
Performance will be in Halling Recital Hall.
Minnesota State University, Mankato Department of Music News Release, 3-3-2017
MANKATO, Minn. -- The Minnesota State University, Mankato orchestra will perform on Tuesday, March 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the Elias J. Halling Recital Hall of the Earley Center for Performing Arts, 320 Maywood Ave.
The university orchestra provides a laboratory for the study of orchestral playing and a practical introduction to orchestral literature. Orchestra Director Joseph Rodgers has transformed the university orchestra by inviting area community members to join the former university orchestra to 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 and $7 for students with a valid MavCARD. Discount tickets are available online for University students. Advance purchase is strongly encouraged. 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.
