Aug 13 Afternoon of Leisure
German immigrants to the Minnesota River Valley contributed a new cultural concept on the frontier: taking Sunday afternoon for quieter work and socializing. Women would come together to knit, tat, crochet and do other handiwork. Men would gather to work with wood or play music. Take a break, bring a picnic and enjoy a relaxing afternoon as you learn about these frontier hobbies and what a Sunday afternoon was like in the 1870s. Refreshments will be served.

Aug 26 Musical Tales Concerto: Growing Young, Growing Wise
Musical Tales Concerto: Growing Young, Growing Wise We all have a journey to take in this life. There are many paths that come at us quickly, sending us reeling one way and then another, and then another. While it will never be completely clear where we're going (until we get there) we can start to see the story-arch of a life unfolding, pointing us in a particular direction. All we have to do is stop and listen. There is music on the wind and its trying to tell us something. (by Marianna Mott Newirth) featuring Peter Michael Von der Nahmer, 2016 McKnight Visiting Composer with the American Composers Forum Directed by Michael J.

Aug 26 Musical Tales Concerto: Growing Young, Growing Wise
Musical Tales Concerto: Growing Young, Growing Wise
 
We all have a journey to take in this life. There are many paths that come at us quickly, sending us reeling one way and then another, and then another. 
While it will never be completely clear where we're going (until we get there) we can start to see the story-arch of a life unfolding, pointing us in a particular direction. All we have to do is stop and listen. 
There is music on the wind and its trying to tell us something.
