Please join us for a special evening of music and the popular Dessert for the Spirit reception.
Jerod Impichchaachaaha' Tate is a citizen of the Chickasaw Nation and a 2011 Emmy Award Winner. Mr. Tate is dedicated to the development of American Indian classical composition, and a review by The Washington Post states that "Tate's connection to nature and the human experience was quite apparent in this piece...rarer still is his ability to effectively infuse classical music with American Indian nationalism." This review was a response to a recent performance of Iholba (The Vision), for Solo Flute, Orchestra and Chorus, which was commissioned by the National Symphony Orchestra and premiered at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Jerod will be joined tonight by the MSU Symphony and Chamber Wind Ensemble.
The President's Fine Arts Series is brought to you by the Montana State University Office of the President and the College of Arts & Architecture.
