Indiana State President’s Concert features Greenfield native

TERRE HAUTE — A Greenfield native is among a dozen distinguished student musicians who represented Indiana State University’s School of Music during the President’s Concert.

Freshman music education major and Greenfield native Tyler Blaisdell performed percussion during the concert at the Landini Center for Performing and Fine Arts. The students were selected to participate based on last semester’s outstanding performances in each area of study.

A wide range of music was represented at the concert, including classical through contemporary era pieces as well as musical theater by composers such as Handel, Schubert, Brahms, Bartok and Richard Rogers.

Blaisdell performs with the Indiana State Wind Orchestra, Percussion Ensemble, Steel Band and the Marching Sycamores. He performed in the 2016 Contemporary Music Festival Student Performer/Composer Recital and is a recipient of the Indiana State Creative and Performing Arts Scholarship.

He is the son of Sam and Hoa Blaisdell.

The concert was free and open to the public. A reception was provided by the President’s Office immediately after the performances.
