We Shall Overcome: A Celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Presented by CSB/SJU Fine Arts Series at CSB Benedicta Arts Center - Escher Auditorium

Feb 15, 2019

Experience an exuberant, joyful Gospel celebration that will move you with heart and soul. Inspired by the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., We Shall Overcome showcases a soulful range of African American music traditions interwoven with spoken word from Dr. King's recorded speeches. These songs unified a generation of civil rights activists. This inspiring production, which will feature a joint campus and community choir, ties together a living lineage of music and culture, including gospel, classical, jazz, Broadway and spirituals. Musical director Damien Sneed's intimate understanding of each genre allows him to fluidly cover so much musical ground. From Aretha Franklin and Wynton Marsalis to Duke Ellington and Stevie Wonder, We Shall Overcome takes you on a remarkable journey of resilience and hope.   Sponsored in part by Intercultural and International Student Services, El-Jay Plumbing & Heating and Microbiologics.

Presented by Buffalo Community Theater at Discovery Auditorium

Feb 15 - Feb 24, 2019

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that’s been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird.  Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.  Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!

Dinner Theatre Musical at the Great Blue Heron Supper Club in Cold Spring, MN. A feisty parolee follows her dreams, based on a page from an old travel book, to a small town in Wisconsin and finds a place for herself working at Hannah's Spitfire Grill. It is for sale but there are no takers for the only eatery in the depressed town, so newcomer Percy suggests to Hannah that she raffle it off. Entry fees are one hundred dollars and the best essay on why you want the grill wins. Soon, mail is arriving by the wheelbarrow full and things are definitely cookin' at the Spitfire Grill. ​​

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

Presented by Buffalo Community Theater at Buffalo Senior High School PAC

Jul 19 - Jul 27, 2019

Meredith Wilson’s six-time, Tony Award-winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation. The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band that he vows to organize – this, despite the fact that he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain’s fall.
