Headwaters Music & Arts celebrates the impressive talents of our music instructors with our annual instructor showcase 6 pm Friday, February 15 at 519 Minnesota Ave NW, Bemidji. With this year’s theme of We “Heart” Headwaters, the show will be an informal and sweet evening of blues, bluegrass, jazz, classical and contemporary music performed on guitar, banjo, violin, cello, piano, sax, trombone, and trumpet as well as some great vocals.
Headwaters instructors come from a variety of musical backgrounds and the evening’s performances will be as varied as the talents. Audience members can look forward to a five piano version of The Entertainer, and a jazz improv version of My Funny Valentine performed by Carolyn Towler (piano), John Konecne (sax), and Rolf Lund (electric guitar). Another highlight will be an original song composed by piano instructor Carol Gall and performed with Annalise Aakhus. The line up will showcase even more performances offering a dynamic celebration of Headwaters instructors’ individual styles.
The showcase will be emceed by Headwaters 2019 Board President Tanja Bennett. There will be a silent auction with a “date night” basket and other goodies, refreshments and a Brigid’s Pub cash bar. Doors open at 5:30, show starts at 6:00. Cost to attend the evening is $10, $5 for students and seniors 65 +.
