It’s been said “there’s nothing to do in Marshall.” Although it may seem that way, there are usually several arts events going on in and around the area on any given weekend.
Take this weekend for example, the Rose Ensemble, a vocal/instrumental group from the Twin Cities that performs music from different centuries is performing at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Schwan Community Center for the Performing Arts. All My Favorites is having its $100,000 Dance Party at 7:30 p.m. both Friday and Saturday at the Marshall Golf Club. Norwegian organist Lars Gjerde is performing at 7 p.m. Friday at Christ Lutheran Church in Cottonwood. Southern rock band 38 Special is doing two shows Saturday at Prairie’s Edge Casino in Granite Falls, one at 7 p.m. and the other at 9 p.m. Once in a while I’ll sing to myself “Hold on Loosely.” The Fine Arts Council of Tracy is having its “Arts in the Afternoon” at 2:30 p.m. Sunday in the Tracy Missionary Alliance Church. Main Street Jamboree will be at the Pipestone Performing Arts Center at 4 p.m. Sunday.
Being a part of the Marshall Area Stage Company for several years and volunteering at the Marshall Area Fine Arts Center every now and again, I try to keep up with what’s going on with the arts in the Marshall community. Check out Jeff Nelson’s exhibit at MAFAC, which runs until April 5. It’s quite the display. MASC is having auditions for a couple of its upcoming shows: “My Antonia” reader’s theater and the summer musical “Pirates of Penzance.” Auditions for “My Antonia” are 8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, April 7 and 8 at St. Stephen Lutheran Church. Auditions for “Pirates” will be 10 a.m. Saturday, April 5; 4 p.m. Sunday, April 6 and 7 p.m. Monday, April 7, also at St. Stephen’s. So, if you’re moved to get onstage, here are a couple of opportunities for you.
Here is a web site for upcoming arts opportunities to check out: www.southwestmsu.edu/CampusLife/MediaServices/artscalendar.pdf. If you haven’t gotten your ticket for the April 13 Lorie Line concert, they are still available, about 100 left. Call MAFAC at 532-5463 or stop on by...check out the exhibit....
I know there are still more events happening in the second half of March. That will be the subject of future blogs....
