Michigan State musical group to play at Carnegie Hall

February 7, 2014 by  

The 60-piece Wind Symphony, comprised of Michigan State University (MSU) College of Music students, will have the experience of a lifetime later this month, when it plays at New York’s legendary Carnegie Hall.

The concert will be conducted by Kevin Sedatole, who is director of bands for MSU. This is the first time a musical group from MSU has played at the famous venue.

The Wind Symphony is going to New York due to their talent and the sheer hard work of their conductor. MSU bands have been praised for decades for their excellence, but Sedatole has taken the university’s bands to an even higher level of quality, and more than 600 students participate in the seven ensembles that comprise the MSU program.

Those MSU supporters who want to travel to the Big Apple can buy tickets via Carnegie Hall’s website. The concert begins at 8:00 pm on February 22, with tickets priced from $25 to $50. Those who cannot make the trip had a chance to hear the Wind Symphony in Wharton Hall at yesterday evening, during which tickets were free to students.

MSU could work with a flyer printing company to create handouts for distribution on campus, inviting people to future local concerts, as well as letting people know about the New York date.
