Support MSU Concert Bands

By John Zastoupil

This campaign ended on December 17, 2017, but you can still make a gift to Missouri State University by clicking here!

The MSU Wind Ensemble has been selected to perform at the Missouri Music Educators Association Conference in January and the College Band Directors National Association Regional Convention in March. This is only the second time in the history of our program to perform at a CBDNA convention; acceptance to both of these prestigious events in the same year is exciting for our students, but we need YOUR help getting them there!

Your effort in sharing this campaign and contribution to this project will make a difference in reaching our goal to provide a meaningful experience for our students. We would greatly appreciate it if you could spread the word about our campaign by sharing it with your friends through email, on Facebook, and/or Twitter. Giving is easy, secure and a tax-deductible contribution!

These performances will be a highlight of a student's career as a member of the Missouri State University Concert Bands. Thank you for any amount you can give to help our students perform their best at Tan-Tar-A and in Houston.

Together we can reach our goal - GO BEARS!
