The 12-member trombone choir will play a variety of music by the ensemble players: Cal Broughton, Ben Fleming, Alyssa Konecne, Jeff Johnson Paul Mork, Tom Patnaude, Hyram Price, Steven Radley, Glenn Seibel, Melissa Stover, Tom Swanson, Nancy Sydow and Les Torgerson.

A varied program of trombone music will include "Myths and Legends" written by Eric Ewazen, "Sanctuary" by James Kazik, and "Conversation" by Charles Small and other well-known trombone literature.

Trombones of Bemidji is conducted by Tom Swanson, adjunct professor of music, and is sponsored by the Department of Music at BSU. This annual concert is free and open to the public.

"A Midsummer Night's Dream" by William Shakespeare, the spring offering of the BSU theater program, will open this week with performances at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, April 8-9 and April 15-16. A 2 p.m. matinee will be performed Sunday, April 17.

On the main stage at Bangsberg Fine and Performing Arts Complex on the campus of BSU, this comedy is directed by Patrick Carriere with scenery and lighting design by Ellen Jones. This will be the third Shakespeare production by Carriere at BSU and is considered a classic farce, but this time will have a twist: "steampunk."

Steampunk is considered to be a sub-genre of science fiction where the past is re-constructed by using hyper or steam-powered technology. In this play, Carriere uses steampunk in transporting the gods and young people in ancient "Athens" to the sexually repressive Victorian period and then onto their escape to the mystical and magical world of the fairy woods. In short, steampunk is a rewrite of history or alternative interpretations of said history with or without the same outcome.

There will be a talkback after the show on opening night, when the cast and crew will discuss the production and answer questions from the audience.

This production is suited for those in high school or older, due to some adult content. Tickets are $12 for adults, $6 for seniors and students, and free for BSU students with valid identification. The box office number at the college is 755-3935.

"Seussical Jr." a musical production of Long Lake Theater Kids Academy, will be performed at 7 p.m. Friday, April 8, and at 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday, April 9, at Park Rapids High School Auditorium.

This delightful family show brings some of the favorite Dr. Seuss characters to life: Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie and a little kid with a big imagination, Jojo. This exploration through the world of Whoville and Nool features a creative musical full of heart and imagination through which Horton tries to protect Jojo and an abandoned egg. It is a fully staged colorful musical by Tony winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. Tickets are $14 for adults, $7 children (ages 3-12) and lap-sit children are free. Tickets and information may be reached at longlaketheater.com and 218-732-0099.

The 25th Anniversary DeKrey Scholarship Concert will be performed at 3 p.m. Saturday, April 9, in Thompson Recital Hall of Bangsberg.
