October Highlights

The Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra kicked off the fall concert season with To Russia, With Love, a program featuring all Russian music.

The Orchestra then left on its first-ever concert tour on October 25 and played at venues in Norway, Marquette, and Escanaba.

Dr. Neves was interviewed on the radio, and the orchestra was featured on TV6 news.
The orchestra had a wonderful experience sharing their music with the rest of the Upper Peninsula.

Tech Theatre started their season off with a bang (and a stabbing or two) with The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940.  Students successfully stumped and surprised their audiences with a whodunit that had twists at every turn and turns at every twist, and plenty of secret passages.

Also in October was the KSO's first recital in their fall recital series.  Something Wicked This Way Comes, a theme fitting for the Halloween season, featured several Tech Students and local musicians singing and playing their own versions of wicked (or just wickedly awesome) music.

November has already kicked off around the VPA with a Superior Winds Concert and a film festival.

Much more to come!
