The annual Strings, Winds & Brass variety showcase is an opportunity for Minnesota State College Southeast students and friends to share their amazing talents with the Red Wing community. Every year it’s a different experience. This year the concert ranges from classical to classic rock, old-time fiddle to jump-roping clog dancer, and singer-songwriter to second-line jazz band with all kinds of exciting music along the way!
And it’s not just about entertainment. The performers are paying it forward, as proceeds from the variety show are directed into Minnesota State College Southeast Foundation scholarship funds which will benefit future students.
