"A Tuna Christmas"

For 14 years in a row, Vera Carp has won the annual Christmas Yard Display Contest in Tuna, the third-smallest town in Texas. But this year the mysterious Christmas Phantom, known for vandalizing yard displays, threatens to throw the contest into disarray.

Come enjoy the ensuing chaos and the comedy as the Minnesota State Community and Technical College Theatre Department presents "A Tuna Christmas," both an affectionate commentary and a critical satire on small-town Southern life and attitudes.

Eight M State actors will play the 25 colorful characters in "A Tuna Christmas," including Cassie Zimmer of Clarissa; Christine Harrington, Angel Fleming, Austin Begley and Jamie Olsen of Fergus Falls; Ethan Quill of Becker; Jeanne Lindstrom of Cokato; and Madicyn Monsrud of Roseau.

Directed by Stefanie Gerhardson, performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Nov. 3 and 4; 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 5; and 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 9-11.

Tickets are $9 in advance and $11 at the door for adults, and $7 in advance and $8 at the door for students. Advance tickets are available in the M State Box Office, by calling 218.736.1600 or online at mstatetickets.com.



 

Celebrating America Band Concert

Minnesota State Community and Technical College will be "Celebrating America" on Sunday, Nov. 19, in a musical performance honoring area veterans and featuring internationally acclaimed guest trumpeter Joe Burgstaller.

Area veterans and their spouses will be admitted free of charge to the concert, set for 2 p.m. in Legacy Hall on M State's Fergus Falls campus. The concert will feature the M State Concert Band directed by Jim Iverson and will be joined for two numbers by the M State Chamber Chorale under the direction of Teresa Ashworth.

The program showcases an array of patriotic music including "The Star Spangled Banner," "The Scot's Brigade," "America, The Beautiful," "Mars, The Bringer of War," "Stars and Stripes Forever" and "Armed Forces Salute," during which veterans will be asked to stand when the band performs the song representing their branch of the military.

Chamber Chorale singers will join the Concert Band for "Be Thou My Vision" and "Hymn to the Fallen."

Burgstaller, a longtime trumpet player for the Canadian Brass, will perform two pieces following the intermission, "La Virgen de la Macarena" and George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue," accompanied by M State's piano instructor, Dr. Kevin Priebe. Burgstaller has toured extensively in the United States and worldwide and currently is a full-time faculty member teaching trumpet and brass chamber music at The Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

Tickets are $9 in advance and $11 at the door for adults, and $7 in advance and $8 at the door for students. Advance tickets are available in the M State Box Office, by calling 218.736.1600 or online at mstatetickets.com.

John Rutter's "Gloria"

Minnesota State Community and Technical College welcomes the holiday season this year with an 80-voice choral performance of John Rutter's "Gloria" and costumed Old English carolers singing traditional Christmas favorites.

The M State Music Department's Holiday Concert is set for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 30, in Legacy Hall on the Fergus Falls campus. The concert will be followed by an afterglow with holiday refreshments and strolling carolers.

"Gloria," a celebration of the holiday season, will feature a brass ensemble accompanying members of the M State Concert Choir and Chamber Chorale under the direction of M State Choral Director Teresa Ashworth. M State Concert Band Director Jim Iverson is coordinating the brass ensemble.

Both choirs also will perform individually. A highlight of the Chamber Chorale performance will be a solo by M State sophomore Sidney Imsande of New York Mills, who will sing "Only in Sleep" by Latvian composer Erik Esenvalds.

Sixteen costumed carolers, members of the college's auditioned Voice Ensemble, will sing "Ding! Dong! Merrily on High," "Angels We Have Heard on High" and "Sleigh Ride."

The concert will end with a Pentatonix arrangement of "Silent Night."

Tickets are $9 in advance and $11 at the door for adults, and $7 in advance and $8 at the door for students. Advance tickets are available in the M State Box Office, by calling 218.736.1600 or online at mstatetickets.com.
