North Hennepin Community College Fall Concert Series Starts Dec. 4
Starting Monday, North Hennepin’s Fine Arts Theatre comes alive with music.
Classical, traditional and pop rock await concert-goers during North Hennepin Community College’s Fall Concert Series.
Student performers say they hope to connect with the audience.
“I really hope they take the messages of all the songs to heart, because they all kind of build off of each other and connect in sort of a way,” said Max Wagner, who’s part of the NHCC Vocal Ensemble.
“I hope they leave thinking, ‘wow,’ we were able to come together at a time when there is a lot of stress around the holidays, but coming together and just sharing some happiness,” said Zach Hansen, also of the NHCC Vocal Ensemble.
Here is the schedule of next week’s events:
Monday, Dec. 4, 7:30 p.m., FAC Theatre
The NHCC Symphony Orchestra presents “Curtain Up” for a return to the classics, featuring music by Rimsky-Korsakov, Schubert, Mascagni, Bizet, Dvorak, and Rossini. The event will also be available via live stream.
