Fine Arts Celebration Runs March 22-May 3 at SMSU

by SMAC

Marshall, Minn. — The Southwest Minnesota State Fine Arts Celebration returns to an in person format in 2022, and will run from March 22 through May 3.

“Two years ago we had to cancel the event due to COVID-19, and last year the events that were held were done virtually,” said Dr. John Ginocchio, Director of Bands at SMSU and the event coordinator.

“Something for Everyone” could describe this year’s celebration, which includes exhibits, vocal and instrumental concerts, performances by the Southwest Minnesota Orchestra, costume-making, plays, readings, student recitals/performances, and more.

“There’s a wide variety of events planned and we are certainly glad to return to an in-person format” said Ginocchio. “Most of the events are free of charge, also, and we invite the public to participate.”
