MSU University Relations

 

The Starkville-Mississippi State University Symphony will be joined Tuesday, Sept. 29, by the city-campus'' Brass Quintet for a performance at the downtown Cadence Bank plaza at the corner of Main and Jackson streets in Starkville. 

 


"Pops on the Plaza," a free event to begin at 6 p.m., is sponsored by the local Metrocast cable company office. Audience seating will be provided.  

 


Dating back several decades, "Pops" typically has provided an evening of jazz favorites. This year, the program expands to include other musical genres, with narration provided by Michael Brown. 

 


In addition to heading MSU''s music department, Brown is the symphony''s director and the Brass Quintet''s second trumpet.  

 


Other quintet members, also MSU faculty members, include Richard Human on trombone; Michael Huff, first trumpet; and Cliff Taylor, bass trombone. They will be joined by symphony hornist Sheree Lence. 

 


Now in its 40th season, the Starkville-MSU Symphony has the distinction of being among the nation''s smallest community orchestras.
