A night for music and celebrationLongest Night

Join us for this free concert as the world turns toward the longer days of spring.  A bevy of artists (including Lisa Winter, Fr. Peter Kirchner, John Perry, Dave Virnala, Dennis Happel, Lou Hoglund, Marie Nitke, Doug Eckes, Michael Dagen, Amber Fletschock, Adam Dagen, Jim Van Schaick, Amy Wallgren, Heidi Dresser, Ben Ranson, Nora Hyde, David Stoddard, Renita McGrane, and Macelle Mahala) will be at the Center to celebrate the solstice and the season of light.  We hope you can come to this free, informal concert, the last Cultural Center event of the year.

And we’ll introduce everyone to the coming “winter light” festivities to be held February 2nd (Candlemas Day and Groundhog Day, midway between the winter solstice and the vernal equinox), a new project supported by a cultural heritage grant provided  by Lake Region Arts Council and by the generous support of the members of the Cultural Center.
