MAE SIMPSON MUSIC
NOVEMBER 19, 2020
LIVE STREAM PERFORMANCE

CSU SERENDIPITY MUSIC SERIES

On November 19, 2020, the Serendipity Music Series featured a live stream concert with Mae Simpson Music, the 2019 City Pages Readers' Choice for Best New Band, and nominee for Best Live Concert. Due to rising cases of COVID-19, the performance in the CSU Ostrander Auditorium was live stream only with the band performing to an empty venue. It didn't change the energy that earned the band its recognition. The video performance, which begins after a 17-minute interview with band founder Mae Simpson,  provides two hours of music that spotlights Mae Simpson's amazing vocals and the band's ability to cross a wide range of music genres from blues to hiphop. 

ABOUT THE SERENDIPITY MUSIC SERIES

The ongoing Serendipity Music Series in the Centennial Student Union at Minnesota State University, Mankato, offers free mid-week, mid-day performances for the campus and Mankato area community that spotlight Minnesota musicians with "street-corner serenade" style performances. Passers-by can stop to listen or bring their lunch and enjoy some of Minnesota's finest musicians. The performances during fall and spring semesters are sponsored by the Centennial Student Union with support through the student activity fee.
