“It was so fun to see the look in the RDC employees' eyes when we showed up with all of the winter gear. They were surprised by how much we brought and so thankful to be able to help more refugee families by providing them coats, hats, and gloves during the winter months. It was a great feeling to know that more people could stay warm this year because of the RDC.”— Julia, Credit Union employee

MSUFCU members and guests enjoyed an evening of high-energy jazz music with a performance by jazz trumpeter, Jon Faddis, during our second Blue Mondays concert on December 9, 2013, at MSUFCU Headquarters. The internationally acclaimed artist was accompanied by MSU College of Music jazz faculty and students.

During his residency, Faddis performed for the public with Jazz Orchestra I, MSU’s premiere student jazz ensemble, at MSU’s Auditorium and St. Matthew's and St. Joseph's Episcopal Church located in Detroit. A trumpet teacher committed to education, Faddis also worked with College of Music students, and joined high school jazz musicians in Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo, and elementary students in East Lansing to influence and provide educational experiences for these young musicians. This is made possible by the MSU Federal Credit Union Jazz Artist in Residence Endowment, which invests in the MSU College of Music’s curriculum and the community.
