Honors Musicale 2019

The Olivier Music Barn, 3:00 PM


Students from MSU’s Honors College will join Dean Ilse-Mari Lee, cello, and Dr. Lukas Graf, baritone, for a special musicale in the Olivier Music Barn. Since Tippet Rise’s inaugural year in 2016, the Honors College and the art center have enjoyed a wonderful and unique partnership. Honors students have participated in “Arts Expeditions” at Tippet Rise each summer and have performed in the Olivier Music Barn each fall. “This opportunity,” Dean Lee said, “allows students to immerse themselves not only in art, music, and nature, but also in architecture, environmental sciences, engineering, and land management, thus connecting the human experience with the sights, sounds, and beauty of the area surrounding Fishtail.”


On October 19, students and faculty will perform various chamber music works, including Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No 3 in G Major and the “The Wound-Dresser” by American Composer John Adams, a hauntingly beautiful setting of Walt Whitman’s poem of the same title (1865), based on his experience as a hospital volunteer during the American Civil War.
We are thrilled to host the Honors College musicians once again. We hope you will join us!
