2017 MSU Alumni Band Spring Concert Reunion
Sunday, April 30, 2017 3:00pm
This year we will again be joined by the Spartan Youth Wind Symphony. We look forward to sharing the stage with them!
This is the registration site for all events connected to the Spring 2017 MSU Alumni Band concert reunion. Please take a few minutes and read through this information before registering (below). Even if you will not be attending, we encourage you to fill out the form to help keep our records up to date.
Please use this site to provide us with all necessary information to make sure you are properly registered for each event you wish to attend. This is a secure site - none of the information you provide is being given to a third party.
Fill out the form as completely as possible. Each "ticket" shown is for a specific function or payment ... please make sure that you look at each ticket that you wish to receive. To participate, you must select the "Reunion Registration" ticket and be a member of the Alumni Band. If you have not paid your annual dues to become a member (most people paid this last August or September for the Fall reunion), please select the Annual Dues option, also. (Alumni Band dues run from September to September of each year). If you've graduated from MSU within the past year, your dues are waived for this year! Please select the appropriate ticket for your annual dues (new graduates - you must supply your graduation year later in the registration process).
There are a number of questions with required responses. This is to make sure we have as much pertinent information as possible up-front, and that everything runs as smoothly as possible for everyone on the day of the concert. Please make sure your email is current, and that you can receive attachments!
We prefer that you pay by credit card, but you also have the option to send in a check. Questions or comments? Direct them to the Alumni Band at email@example.com, or call 517-351-4582.
Music is now posted on-line at this link: SPRING MUSIC Pieces include: Fandango (Perkins), Suite of Old American Dances (Bennett), The Dam Busters (Coates), and Prelude to Act I - La Traviata (Verdi). Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can't find your music.
Brunch Buffet at the Kellogg Center
The Alumni Band will again have an optional buffet brunch at the Kellogg Center, following the morning rehearsal. It will run from 12:00-2:00pm, and you may select as many tickets to this event as you would like - family members and friends are welcome to attend. The brunch is informal, and is a good opportunity to relax, visit with others, and talk with directors. Note that the ticket is for your reservation, only. You will pay for the meal at the Kellogg Center.
