Stage: 12' x 12', 3' high, with a canopy

Hosted by: U of M alumnus and Gopher Sports announcer Matt Nelson, who will host stage activities and to highlight the exhibits and groups in the building so that everyone sees more traffic.

We invite our outstanding student musicians to join us by performing on the U of M stage for hundreds of Fairgoers. The schedule is wide open at this point and we welcome all types of ensembles--vocal, brass, steel drum, strings--whatever!
Comp tickets will be provided to musicians who commit to performing for at least 60 minutes (this can be split into two 30 minute shifts).
