Hundreds gathered inside Missouri State University’s Ellis Hall Sunday for the renovated music building’s dedication ceremony. Community members filed in for self-guided tours and to hear music by Missouri State’s Chorale and brass band.

Dr. Shawn Wahl, interim dean of the College of Arts and Letters, said the upgraded facility sends a message to students to be “bigger and bolder.” He said Missouri State can now be a “destination school” for the arts.

Organizers of this week’s demonstrations both supporting and critical of President Donald Trump say they’re pleased with mostly peaceful expressions while he visited Springfield.

As anti-Trump protesters gathered at the local Teamsters Hall before marching to Commercial Street, the president’s supporters lined Kearney Street as Trump’s motorcade rode by. Springfield police say there were no arrests stemming from the events.
