1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m

Join us for an interactive experience of music, art, and science at the heart of the MSU campus. The Beal Botanical Garden and the MSU College of Music present free, family-friendly events on Sunday afternoons throughout the summer. Bring your lawn chair or a blanket and get ready for a musical experience!

This year we are celebrating the 150th Anniversary of our Campus Arboretum. Each of our themes are inspired by the ways in which trees positively impact our lives!

Breathe With Us
Take a deep breath – trees release oxygen and keep the air around us safe to breathe. What else is important for your personal wellbeing?
