BEMIDJI -- Ice crystals showered us as we followed a trail of candles to the entrance, a gates man greeted us with "Good Eve, welcome to the Manor" as we entered. Fellow guests greeted us and promised a evening we would not soon forget, and after 14 years, we will tell you about the magic of the Madrigal Dinner at Bemidji State University. But then again, why spoil the magic for you?
Thank you Bemidji, for making so many people happy: Bemidji Community Theater hosted more than 1,700 attendees at its home base in the historic Chief Theater in downtown Bemidji.
The winter season isn't even here, but the fall season is in full swing with all the holiday events to be finished before the semester ends with winter concerts at BSU, the Bemidji Symphony Orchestra and the final performance at 2 p.m. of "Fiddler on the Roof," a collaboration of Bemidji Community Theater and the Paul Bunyan Playhouse at the historic Chief Theater in downtown Bemidji. Limited tickets at the door: $12 for adults and $6 for children 17 and younger. Maestro Magnus Martenssen will appear as the First Annual Holiday Showcase today at 3 p.m.
This is the time of year when "couch potatoes" know no friends, for the deer season is open and the hunters are out in the fields; football and other outdoor sports abound and music lovers can almost go from one venue to another. We hope that you were able to enjoy "Wizard of Oz," the fall musical for Bemidji High School this past week. Today "Flute, Fantasy and Fun" with the Bemidji Symphony Orchestra will begin at 3 p.m.
The first week of a very busy November in the arts community begins today with a Wind Ensemble performance at 3 p.m. on the main stage of Bangsberg Fine and Performing Arts Center of Bemidji State University. There's also a brass band playing this week, as well as the BSU faculty recitals and a symphony orchestra performance next Sunday.

It's soon "that time of year" to buy your tickets to the 46th Annual Madrigal Dinner, a production of the Department of Music at Bemidji State University. Always the introduction to the Christmas season, this year's event will feature a Renaissance feast once held in English castles, bringing to life the regal pageantry and ceremonial pomp of Merrie Olde England with the Royal Court, minstrels, beggars, cellar keepers, recorder players and a masque (comedic play) while the guests enjoy a five-course dinner.
"An Evening with Amy Grant" begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Sanford Center. Grant's career spans more than 25 years and has been a stellar attraction in contemporary Christian music and mainstream music. She will perform songs from her extensive repertoire and her newest release, "How Mercy Looks From Here." Tickets start at $25 are still on sale at the Bob Lowth Ford Pickup Windows at the center, Lueken's Village Foods and any Ticketmaster location. • The Opera Encore HD opens its third season of fine operas and ballets showing at local movie theaters.
