MSU College of Music on the Road

Faculty members travel far and wide, perform on stages around the nation, and world.

In addition to teaching and inspiring students, faculty members in the College of Music spend much of their time performing concerts and recitals, giving master classes and clinics, presenting lectures, and sharing their musical expertise in a wide range of areas. This work takes our faculty around the state, the country, and around the world. Below you will find dates and venues of some of our applied faculty showing how they spend their summer semester.
