We will be performing  our commissioned work by Jonathan Campbell, Dakota Summer: Scenes from the Prairie. More information about the piece can be found below.






In 2015 we commissioned Jonathan Campbell to compose a new piece of music for us. With themes of the northern prairie, our Scandinavian roots, and using a variety of flutes, Jon composed his first flute quartet, Dakota Summer: Scenes from the Prairie. The 9-minute work for mixed flute quartet evokes moods, feelings, and imagery of a hot summer day, as well as the musical depictions of a Sunday prayer, a barn dance, and a silent cemetery. Dakota Summer has been published and can be purchased on the Theodore Presser Company's website.  


Grants


We are so proud to have recently received a music grant from The Arts Partnership and Jade Presents! The funds from this grant will go towards a program of Celtic flute music featuring percussion, dancers, a singer, and fiddler. Stay tuned for the release of this project!
