Serendipity Music Series: Fall 2020




"Mae Simpson's voice seems to come from another time. The time when sounds, words and passion mattered most in music."

- Richard Dollarhide, Music In

One of the Twin Cities' most popular bands for 2019, Mae Simpson Music will perform Thursday, Nov. 19, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Centennial Student Union's Ostrander Auditorium. Named the City Pages 2019 Readers' Choice for Best New Band and nominated as Best Live Concert, Mae Simpson Band. Leading the band, Mae Simpson brings powerhouse vocals backed by six talented musicians that bring a sound that refuses to fall neatly into a single genre. Blistering funk and dance music mixed with soul, blues, country, calypso, jazz, rock, and even a little hip hop, Mae Simpson Music has earned a loyal following that is reaching throughout the Upper Midwest.  

The CSU Serendipity Music Series is exciting to offer Mae Simpson Music as its Fall 2020 and as a send-off to students departing for the Thanksgiving break. Due to COVID, remaining fall classes will continue online after Thanksgiving.

While COVID is limiting the seating in Ostrander Auditorium to 50, students and fans will still be able to see the live performance through live-streaming offered through the CSU Facebook site. More details are coming.
