I <3 Classical Music Pop Ups
The I <3 Classical Music Pop Up Concert Series appeared on campus featuring the EMU choirs, a string quartet, and a cello duet. Held in the Student Center and Halle Library, many people stopped going about their busy days to listen to the music being played. The response from the audience members was well received with positive comments and over 100 surveys taken.
The purpose of the pop up concerts were to bring classical music to millennials who have low attendance at classical music concerts. By having the concerts appear on campus, the barriers between being able to go to a concert were broken. The events were sponsored by the AMP! Student Organization, and were organized by Vanessa Kestner, a second year Arts Administration graduate student. The series will continue for the winter semester 2019.
