ABOUT

Michigan Tech Music, part of the Michigan Tech Visual and Performing Arts Department, offers ten music performance groups: bands, orchestra, jazz, and choral ensembles that expose students, faculty, and the community to the artistic and communicative values of music and the power it has to change lives.

From its humble beginnings in 1928 as the Michigan Tech ROTC Band under the baton of E.E. Melville, the Michigan Tech Huskies Pep Band has grown to become one of the most recognized bands in all of college hockey.  The Huskies Pep Band is open to any Michigan Tech student that likes it louder, faster, and higher!

Mike Christianson, the conductor of the Superior Wind Symphony and Director of Bands at Michigan Tech University, represents the fifth consecutive generation in his family to become a band director. Originally from Fargo, ND, Mr. Christianson moved to the NYC area, where he became an integral part of the Broadway community, holding a low brass chair or subbing on 44 different Broadway shows. Dr. Christianson is an advocate for new wind music, and has solo or co-commissioned new works from John Hollenbeck, Lawton Hall, Kathryn Salfelder, Michael Weinstein, Kenneth Amis, Libby Meyer (2), Steven Bryant, and Katherine Bergman.
