MSU Honors College students take to the stage at Tippet Rise!

September 20, 2018

We are thrilled to announce a very special event coming up at Tippet Rise: an afternoon concert by students and faculty from Montana State University’s Honors College. Titled the Honors Musicale, the event takes place on Saturday, October 6 and features performances by nine Honors College students as well as the department’s dean, Dr. Ilse-Mari Lee, on cello and piano. The Musicale also includes a performance by the 19-member Aoide Singers, founded at MSU in the fall of 2012. Works included in the program span the centuries, from Mozart to Rachmaninov to contemporary composers Arvo Pärt, Eriks Ešenvalds, Martin Åsander and Dean Lee.

The Honors College and Tippet Rise enjoy a special partnership: in addition to the Musicale, which is now in its second year at the art center, the College sends approximately 20 students to Tippet Rise each summer to participate in its “Tippet Rise Arts Expedition.” The course is an opportunity, Dr. Lee says, that “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.”

Established in 2013 by the Montana University System Board of Regents, the Honors College provides opportunities for students to study, conduct research, and exchange ideas in a challenging and supportive academic environment. The Honors Musicale takes place Saturday, October 6 at 3pm. Admission is $10 per person and free to children 21 and under. For tickets, please click on the link below.

We hope to see you at the Honors Musicale at Tippet Rise!
