Selfie Greetings from the Manhattan School of Music Campus!

MSM Students (and others!) still in Andersen Hall send a virtual hello to the MSM Community.

Currently, about 80 members of the MSM Community are residing in Andersen Hall. This “selfie campaign” initiated by President Gandre is a fun way for many of these students to send greetings to the rest of us spread far and wide, around the world.
