Do you like Music? Stop by Imminent Brewing and enjoy solo artist Jon Manners as he brings his percussive blues-edged roots-rock to the stage. Jon Manners has been playing guitar since 1957. An opening act for The Lovin’ Spoonful, he was discovered in the early 70’s by Andrew Loog Oldham, impresario and producer of The Rolling Stones. With Oldham producing, Manners recorded for the Rare Earth label, a subsidiary of Motown but the hit single never materialized.

The Secret Garden, this Tony Award-winning musical is the enchanting classic story originally written by Frances Hodgson Burnett, composed by Lucy Simon, and re-imagined in brilliant musical style by Marsha Norman, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright. Set in the early 1900s, orphaned 11 year-old Mary Lennox returns from India to Yorkshire to live with her embittered, reclusive uncle Archibald and his invalid son Colin. The estate’s many wonders include a magic garden which beckons the children with haunting melodies dramatizing The Secret Garden‘s compelling tale of forgiveness and renewal.

St. Olaf Chamber Singers and Carleton Chamber ChoirWhen: Sun, April 14, 7:30pm – 9:30pm
Where: Boe Memorial Chapel (map)
The Carleton Chamber Choir, directed by Matthew Olson, is a select mixed-voice ensemble of 12-16 students singing challenging repertoire ranging from music of the Renaissance, Baroque, Romantic, and 20th Century time periods. St. Olaf Chamber Singers, directed by Therees Tkach Hibbard, has a membership of 20-24 singers and focuses primarily on music of the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and Modern eras. Occasional performances range outside that repertory and have included American parlor songs and contemporary chamber music. The ensemble performs most of its music as a choral group, but students also have the opportunity to perform madrigals and other music appropriate for smaller ensembles, one to a part, or as soloists with early instruments.
