KCTM mid-semester concert is March 27

The Kentucky Center for Traditional Music (KCTM) will hold its “Sounds of Our Heritage” mid-semester concert on Wednesday, March 27, at the Rowan County Arts Center at 7 p.m.

The event will feature performances from all sections of the student ensemble. KCTM students will present various musical styles, including Bluegrass, string band, and old-time country music.

Admission is free, and the concert is open to the public.

Daxson Lewis, director of KCTM, said concerts like this give MSU students beneficial performance experiences in these styles of music.

“Our students are training to be industry professionals, studying not only the skills necessary to present a show as a performer but also the techniques required to produce a performance as an audio engineer, stage manager, sound tech, stage designer, etc. All are equally important,” Lewis said. “The Mid-Semester and End of Semester Showcase performances are an opportunity to present the accomplishments of our students while also giving back to the community that steadfastly supports us.”

Located in the heart of the Bluegrass State, where Bluegrass, old-time, and country music history has its roots, KCTM preserves, teaches, helps develop, and celebrates our rich mountain heritage. KCTM offers an opportunity to study with musicians who have performed with legends like Johnny Cash and at the Grand Ole Opry and to learn from professionals about performance, history, recording, the music industry, and more.
