SYNOPSIS

 

The company describes it as “a rock-recital that melds art song with rock song,” featuring “arrangements and mash-ups blending everything from Kate Bush to Brahms and Schubert to Springsteen.” Featuring Willmar native and Minnesota Opera star Andrew Wilkowske and the all-female “horn experience” Genghis Barbie, this sounds like the perfect hot-town, summer-in-the-city evening.
