The College of Music at Michigan State University in East Lansing is debuting its new artist-in-residence program that will bring jazz musicians to campus. The program is funded by a $1 million grant from the Michigan State University Federal Credit Union.
The first artist-in-residence will be saxophonist Antonio Hart. He will teach and give performances while on campus. Hart, a graduate of the Berklee College of Music in Boston, is a professor at Queens College, a campus of the City University of New York system.
