Upcoming show: Prairie Winds “A Musical Odyssey” coming to Dawson on April 28

Prairie Winds Concert Band – April 28, 2024

Dawson-Boyd Arts Association is pleased to present a Sunday afternoon performance of “Space – A Musical Odyssey” by Prairie Winds Concert Band. This concert band is made up of approximately 60 musicians from around the Willmar area.

The theme of the concert is “space” and features music from Out of This World and several other recognizable theme songs from space movies. As a special treat, Dawson’s very own musician, Chris Lehne, will be featured on the piano in one of the pieces titled Open Space.

According to Director Brock Duncan, “there are some tongue and cheek selections that audiences will recognize, in addition to some classic jazz standards that have a space tie-in as well.” Duncan is an accomplished musician currently in his 33rd year as the band director at Benson High School. He has a personal connection to the Dawson area as his wife, Anne (Torstenson), is a DBHS graduate.

Event sponsors for this concert are Ralph & Sue Gerbig. Coffee from Gnometown Grounds will be served in the lobby. Admission to the 3pm concert on Sunday, April 28 is $20 for adults and $5 for students. Tickets are currently available online or at the door or call 320-312-2311 to leave a message at the box office.
