    Janet Olney

    Paramount Theatre and Visual Arts Center
    November 5-December 6, 2014

    Janet Olney has been creating organic and eclectic weavings since 1984. She uses many different fibers in her projects including sea grass, yarn and her preferred choice of reed. She finds it “simply magical” when she completes her baskets out of just a simple pile of reeds. Intentional and deliberate, her baskets retain a feeling of freedom, randomness, and honesty while maintaining control over her materials.

    November 5th – December 6th 2014
    There will be a reception for Janet Olney on Friday, November 14th from 5-9pm at the Gallery Saint Germain.

    A Civil War Portrait

    A Civil War Portrait

    Minnesota Center Chorale
    November 2, 2014

    Minnesota Center Chorale and special musical guests, Cristina Seaborn and Paul Imholte, will present a history of the Civil War in song.

    In commemoration of the recent 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, the concert begins with the build up to war in the free spirited era of the minstrel song, as such by Stephen Foster, in a medley arranged by Joseph Martin containing, “Camptown Races; Oh, Susanna; Some Folks Do; Beautiful Dreamer; The Glendy Burk; and Swannee River”. The concert proceeds into pre-war sentiment with a performance by the choir of “Testament of Freedom” by Randall Thompson, and a few songs written by Stephen Foster for solo voice and piano, such as “I’ll Be a Soldier” – arranged for the first time into a choral score by Keith Larson. Additional selections include “Civil War” Medley by Greg Gilpin; “Lorena”, arranged by St. Cloud native and Yale University Glee Club director, Jeffrey Douma; and shape-note song, “Idumea”, arranged by Richard Bjella. The effects of war are evident in the song portraying Mississippi women decorating tombs of soldiers from both the union and the confederacy shortly after the war in “The Blue and the Grey” by John Purifoy. The concert concludes with audience participation in singing “Battle Hymn of the Republic” by Peter Wilhousky.

    All are invited to attend a free pre-concert conversation at 2:30pm at Calvary Church to be given on musical instruments of the Civil War, presented by fiddler/violinist Cristina Seaborn and string specialist/dulcimer/harmonica/banjo player Paul Imholte.

    Members of the Central Minnesota Civil War Roundtable will have a display of information in the Lobby and be on hand to answer questions.

    CSB/SJU Fine Arts Series
    November 1, 2014

    Ellis Island was the gateway to America - a land of opportunity for some, a land of exclusion for others. 5,000 immigrants a day passed through this "Island of Hope, Island of Tears." Packed into the steerage of steamships, they left their homelands with few possessions but a wealth of hope, promise and music. Steerage Song is a musical kaleidoscope of their journey to America.
    Creators Peter Rothstein and Dan Chouinard have developed this docu-musical, blending the songs of 20 countries of Old Europe and the rhythms of Tin Pan Alley into a moving, fully-staged, new musical.
