In celebration of Montana State Universities 125th birthday, the MSU Wind Symphony will present a concert of exceptional music that reflects the history, depth of talent, and future vision of MSU. Taken from the old English rhyme, "Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, and Something Blue,” the theme of the concert is to perform works that represent each part of the rhyme. “Something Old” is the classic Overture by Felix Mendelssohn, performed by only select members of the ensemble. “Something New” is the world premiere of a new MSU-theme work (yet to be titled) composed by award-winning MSU alumnus, Daniel Bukvich. “Something Borrowed” is a wind-band transcription of extraordinarily popular orchestral concerto for Timpani, “Raise the Roof,” by Michael Daugherty, and will be performed by MSU’s very own, Professor Stephen Versaevel. Lastly, “Something Blue” is one of the most important cross-over compositions of our generation, “Blue Shades,” by Frank Ticheli.
The President's Fine Arts Series is brought to you by the Montana State University Office of the President, the College of Arts & Architecture and the School of Music. This year's series Legacy + Art: Celebrating 125 Years of Creativity honors Montana State University's 125 Anniversary and will take place during the month of March.
All events are free and open to the public. No tickets will be printed with seating being filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
