OSU Musicians Share Summer Music

OSU musicians have been busy helping with community music throughout the summer.  They will also be involved with the Cedar City Arts Council Final Friday events on July 29 and August 27 from 5 to 7 p.m. along Center Street.

Thank you note from SUU's Kelli Griffin who coordinated the performance: 
"Thank you so much for your help at the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Center for the Arts 
Grand Opening.  the music was absolutely perfect and beautiful.  It set the tone for
the entire event and we couldn't have done it without you!  Thank you for being so 
willing to jump in and be so willing to help, and for being so great to work with.  
If there is anything we can do for you please let us know.."

It was an exciting event and OSU was pleased to be able to help.
