The 150th Anniversary Celebration of Bands will fill the Great Hall with resounding energy after the event was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The powerful, multi-dimensional program features the MSU Concert Band, Symphony Band and Wind Symphony in performances of diverse works designed to showcase wind ensembles and celebrate their rich history. Program highlights include solo and duo performances by MSU professor of saxophone Joseph Lulloff and his son, College of Music alumnus Jordan Lulloff, world and wind premieres by Grammy-nominated composer and MSU associate professor of composition Zhou Tian, and guest composers Aaron Perrine and Ivette Herryman-Rodriguez.
