On November 8th, 2017 at 7:30pm the MSU Percussion Ensemble will be giving their fall concert in Reynolds Recital Hall. Admission is free. Works by Ivan Trevino, Nathan Daughtrey, John Alfieri, and the Northwest premier of a piece by Blake Tyson. Blake Tyson's piece The Surface of The Sky was written to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the integration of Little Rock Central High School and is dedicated to the nine students who courageously led the way. The composer writes, "The Surface of the Sky does not attempt to depict any specific event of the crisis through music. Instead, I've tried to find a way to honor the bravery and courage of the nine students through music. They truly risked everything to move us all forward. To stand up to bullying, the threats, and the hatred took incredible strength and character for each on of them, and we all owe them our gratitude and our respect".

We hope you join us to help commemorate this historic event.
