Spring 2023
See down below for our
two concert locations.
Coming up!

Nicolas Carter
Sat, June 24  7:00
First Presbyterian Church

And now for something moderately different: Nicolas Carter and his harp. Nicolas has roots in Minnesota (born here and received a theatre MFA from the U of M) and Paraguay (where he grew up and learned the harp). He has  worked in theatre and education, but tonight we will get the musician and story-teller and the sound of the  Paraguayan harp. (Also different: The concert is at First Presbyterian, and it's on a Saturday, and not even the first one. Wind and set your calendars accordingly.)


Tickets: $15 plus service charge, online through June 23.   
$20 at door on the evening of the show.

Donations are tax deductible and offer donor recognition & thanks. This is not a profitable enterprise. Our ticket sales typically do not quite cover musician compensation, much less printing, advertising, theater rental, insurance, etc., etc. We have in recent years been fortunate to receive grants to help defray expenses, we have received in-kind donations from our season sponsors, and we have also enjoyed increasing support from patrons such as yourselves. Collectively, these are the pieces of the financial puzzle that keep our boat afloat. Please consider a donation. Any amount is greatly appreciated and is tax deductible.
