Child of Mississippi Concert
Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts


Join us for a musical celebration that will showcase the stories of people who have become successful from their relationship with The University of Mississippi and this great state. We believe that when someone becomes affiliated with our flagship university, they become a “child” of Mississippi. This concert is our way of lifting up this powerful, positive message. The evening will honor multiple Grammy Award-winner, Carl Jackson (musician, singer, songwriter, producer, and publisher) as the inaugural recipient of the “Child of Mississippi Medal” and also include performances by Mary Donnelly Haskell, Damein Wash, Tiffany Gammell, Nancy Maria Balach, Brady Bramlett, Adrienne Park, Cecil Price Walden, Korynn Michelle Lacher, Ole Miss Jazz, UM Trumpet Ensemble, the Ole Miss Band, and so much more!
