Nobuntu

Presented by CSB/SJU Fine Arts Series at SJU - Stephen B. Humphrey Theater

Oct 19, 2018

Nobuntu takes a cappella to a whole new level of breathtaking, colorful and inspirational expression. This all-female quintet from Zimbabwe has drawn international acclaim for its fusion of traditional music, Afro Jazz and Gospel. Their rich, pure voices and exhilarating rhythms are accompanied by percussion, traditional instruments and dance movements. The result is a joyous celebration of the word Nobuntu, an African concept that values humbleness, love, unity and family from a woman’s perspective. Nobuntu reminds us that we are all connected by our humanity; we just have to listen.

Mozart Requiem

Presented by Minnesota Center Chorale at CSB Benedicta Arts Center - Escher Auditorium

Oct 21, 2018

Composing while on his deathbed and dying before its completion, Mozart masterfully imbued this ancient rite of passage with the gamut of human emotion—sorrow, reckoning, peace, and joy. This piece, requiring a stage full of singers and musicians, should be experienced by everyone at least once in a lifetime!

Company, a musical comedy

Presented by Buffalo Community Theater at Discovery Auditorium

Oct 12 - Oct 21, 2018

On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor, Robert, contemplates his unmarried state. Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks and even a wedding, his friends – “those good and crazy people [his] married friends” – explain the pros and cons of taking on a spouse. The habitually single Robert is forced to question his adamant retention of bachelorhood during a hilarious array of interactions. Company features a brilliantly brisk and energetic score containing many of Stephen Sondheim’s best known songs: “You Could Drive a Person Crazy,” “Being Alive” and “Another Hundred People”, to name a few. The strength of the piece lies in its vivid yet real characters, meaning impressive technical aspects aren’t necessary to convey the story.  . Every audience member will see reflections of themselves in at least one of the characters onstage.

BCO’s principal cellist, Dr. Andrew Burgdorf, and violinist, Ms. Erika Blanco, will take the stage in a performance of Brahms Double Concerto for Violin and Cello. Written as a peace offering to an estranged friend and colleague, Brahms created a wonderful masterpiece that showcases the cello and violin uniquely intertwined with the orchestra. Brahms explores fully the colors and beauty of the violin and cello individually and collectively with the orchestra, moving the listener through different musical scenes and emotions. Opening Night! will also feature BCO soloist Yvonne Rammel in a performance of Adagio non troppo, the second movement of the Mozart Flute Concerto in G. A prolific artist, Austrian composer Wolfgang A. Mozart created a string of operas, concertos, symphonies and sonatas that profoundly shaped classical music.

Presented by Granite City Folk Society at Bo Diddley's Pub & Deli

Nov 02, 2018

Main Series Tim Fast could be a character in one of the gems-of-a-song he writes and sings, a catalog of great original songs that have touched audiences from coast to coast and all the way from his native Minnesota down to the Texas Gulf Coast. Cliff Eberhardt and James Keelaghan think he's cool, and so do we. Charlie Roth's songbag blends Americana, Folk, Blues, Country, and Celtic. What he is best at is telling a story, backed by his acoustic guitar, rack harmonica, and foot percussion. He has recorded with Sam Bush, Michael Bland, and Bruce McCabe, and his fifth album, "Broken Ground," placed in the top ten on the Euro Americana charts. St. Paul-based Dan Rumsey is a bluesy-folksie kinda guy who, according to Sing Out! magazine, "would have felt right at home in the 1960s folk-blues scene. He is a raw, enthusiastic yet spry bluesman. He wears influences…

Presented by Chamber Music Society of St. Cloud at Paramount Theatre

Armistice Day, November 11, 1918, found people throughout the world singing and dancing in the streets, once again hoping for a peaceful world. In turns celebratory and solemn, this program commemorates the 100th anniversary of this landmark day in history. Tapestry presents works of composers affected by the war, including Ralph Vaughan Williams who abandoned his composing career to enlist as a private in the Royal Army Medical Corp, Sergei Rachmaninoff who was forced to flee Russia in 1917, Claude Debussy whose Noël des infants qui n’on plus de maison lashes out at a world at war, and Maurice Ravel who hoped to serve as a pilot but drove an ambulance and ultimately found a way to express his reaction to the war in his Le Tombeau de Couperin. The program also touches on iconic works including songs by Stephen Foster (American Civil War) and Simon and Garfunkel (Vietnam). Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin is…

Coming Home – The Armistice Anniversary

Presented by St. Cloud Symphony Orchestra at SCSU - Ritsche Auditorium - Stewart Hall

Nov 10, 2018

“Coming Home” will include music honoring fallen soldiers, but it will also focus on notions of peace and home, and the longing for family members to return safely home. The essence of "Coming Home" is the quintessentially American music from Aaron Copland's ballet "Appalachian Spring" which tells the story of the joys and trials of a young couple creating a house and home and concludes with the beloved Shaker melody "The Gift to Be Simple".  The other works on the program speak to themes of war, peace, and home in different ways. “American Salute” composed by American composer Morton Gould in 1942 is based on “When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again”, a popular song from the American Civil War that expressed people’s longing for the return of their friends and relatives who were fighting in the war. “Mutations from Bach” was compiled and arranged for brass ensemble and tympani by American composer Samuel Barber in…

Main Series Chuck Suchy is a midwestern treasure, a singer-songwriter-guitarist-farmer (though not, he would tell us, necessarily in that order) whose work celebrates not only his rural North Dakota roots but the whole range of "human relationships, spirituality, motorcycles, and even sailing."

Borromeo String Quartet

Borromeo String Quartet

Presented by Chamber Music Society of St. Cloud at Atonement Lutheran Church

May 04, 2019

Admired and sought after for both its fresh interpretations of the classical music canon and its championing of works by 20th and 21st century composers, the ensemble has been hailed for its “edge-of-the- seat performances,” by the Boston Globe, which called it “simply the best.” Recently celebrating its 25th anniversary, the Borromeo continues to be a pioneer in its use of technology, and has the trailblazing distinction of being the first string quartet to utilize laptop computers on the concert stage. Reading music this way helps push artistic boundaries, allowing the artists to perform solely from 4-part scores and composers’ manuscripts, a revealing and metamorphic experience which these dedicated musicians now teach to students around the world. FAMILY CONCERT - FREE Saturday, May 4, 2019 at 1:30 p.m. St. Cloud Public Library, 1300 West St. Germain Street, St. Cloud Concert Co-sponsor: David Arnott
