Main Series Peter Mayer is a songwriter's songwriter (see comments by David Wilcox and Janis Ian below), a serious guy ("Holy Now") who is also pretty funny ("Driving with My Knee"), and a bunch of click-stops in between ("Dr. Seuss," "Ordinary Day," "Brand New Harley"). We'll have a whole evening to see how much of his range he can cover. (By the way, this is not the other Peter Mayer, or the other other Peter Mayer--this is our Minnesota Peter Mayer. Accept no Google substitutes.)

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.
