Home Free
Minnesota natives Home Free return home for the holidays! On November 30th the Season 4 Champions of NBC’s The Sing-Off will serenade audiences to country, pop, and Christmas favorites during their “Full of Cheer Tour.” Enjoy some of your favorite holiday music along with the group’s original country hits.

Founded by brothers Chris and Adam Rupp during their college years in the early 2000s, Home Free had been perfecting their live show for years prior to The Sing-Off--performing together for crowds in countless State and County Fairs, on college campuses, in front of Fortune 500 companies, and in theaters all across the country. It was their experience on the road that carried them to a Sing-Off victory, swelling their fan base and bringing their homegrown country style into a national spotlight.

Tickets go on sale Friday, September 26th at noon. Tickets are $35.00 and $28.00. VIP tickets are available for $125.00. A $2.50 Facility Fee will be added to each ticket.

Talking Volumes with Richard Ford
Richard Ford is the author of the Bascombe novels, which include The Sportswriter and its sequels, Independence Day—the first novel to win the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Award—and The Lay of the Land, as well as the short story collections Rock Springs and A Multitude of Sins, which contain many widely anthologized stories. He lives in Boothbay, Maine, with his wife, Kristina Ford

About Let Me Be Frank With You - A Frank Bascombe Book: A brilliant new work that returns Richard Ford to the hallowed territory that sealed his reputation as an American master: the world of Frank Bascombe, and the landscape of his celebrated novels The Sportswriter, the Pulitzer Prize and PEN/Faulkner winning Independence Day, and The Lay of the Land.

In his trio of world-acclaimed novels portraying the life of an entire American generation, Richard Ford has imagined one of the most indelible and widely discussed characters in modern literature, Frank Bascombe. Through Bascombe—protean, funny, profane, wise, often inappropriate—we’ve witnessed the aspirations, sorrows, longings, achievements and failings of an American life in the twilight of the twentieth century.

Now, in Let Me Be Frank with You, Ford reinvents Bascombe in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. In four richly luminous narratives, Bascombe (and Ford) attempts to reconcile, interpret and console a world undone by calamity. It is a moving and wondrous and extremely funny odyssey through the America we live in at this moment. Ford is here again working with the maturity and brilliance of a writer at the absolute height of his powers.

With musical guest John Mark Nelson


When people hear John Mark Nelson's music for the first time, there's often a sense of disbelief. With arrangements that recall the work of veteran songwriters, the 19-year-old Minnetonka, Minn., native has been recording sophisticated compositions since he was 14. Like a younger version of Dirty Projectors frontman David Longstreth, Nelson possesses incredible attention to detail, with instrumentation and lyricism that feel completely plotted out, yet still fresh and new.

Talking Volumes is a partnership of Minnesota Public Radio and the Star Tribune, in collaboration with The Loft Literary Center.

Talking Volumes is made possible in part through the generosity of our sponsors.

Nicolas David
Nicholas David is a vibrant, dynamic and multi-talented singer/songwriter who is making his debut performance at the Fitzgerald Theater for a special one-night concert event to kick off the holiday season. In addition to his unforgettable run with Team CeeLo as a finalist on Season 3 of NBC’s The Voice, Nicholas has released five critically acclaimed albums as well as a #1 hit single on the iTunes Alternative Chart.

When it comes to his iconic live shows, Nicholas is a one-of-a-kind must see act – from the moment he walks on stage he gives himself over to the music and this emotional approach to performing is the very reason the Minnesota music community has affectionately named him “the feelin.”

Also joining Nicholas for this incredible one-night concert event are some of Minnesota’s top musical talents including Alison Scott, Esera Tuaolo, Eric Gordon and Phil Thompson.

NECA


And in keeping with the true meaning of the holiday season, proceeds of this concert event are helping to support Holiday Lights in the Park, Minnesota’s largest local charity holiday event organized by the St. Paul Police Foundation.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, October 15th. Tickets are $42.50, $35.00, and $30.00. A $2.50 facility fee will be added to the price of each ticket.

2 Cellos
Young Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, together known as 2CELLOS, have achieved sensational success by taking the cello to a new level. Their playing style has broken down the boundaries between different genres of music, from classical and film music to pop and rock. 2CELLOS have no limits when it comes to performing live and are equally as impressive when playing Bach and Vivaldi as they are when rocking out AC/DC.

Aside from their huge online following where they continue to amaze with new YouTube hits, 2CELLOS main focus has always been playing live. In addition to many sold out solo tours (US, Japan, Europe) the duo have also appeared on major TV shows such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Ellen DeGeneres Show (multiple times), Lopez Tonight, TV Total with Stefan Raab, ABC’s The Bachelor and many others. 2CELLOS were also the first instrumental act to ever perform on the hugely popular TV series GLEE, where they appeared as special guests in the Michael Jackson tribute episode, performing “Smooth Criminal”. The 2CELLOS’ arrangement of the song, which featured Naya Rivera, debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Digital Songs Chart and landed the 2CELLOS’ debut album in the Top 100.

This event is Sold Out.

Radio Hour

Did you know that a radio could transport you to a different universe? With VocalEssence, anything is possible. Jake Heggie, one of the world’s most prominent composers of dramatic vocal music and composer of the opera Dead Man Walking, along with librettist Gene Scheer, have created a new choral opera titled The Radio Hour which crosses Alice in Wonderland with the golden age of radio in a magical program about the power of singing to shape and give meaning to our lives. The precursor to the opera will include a swinging salute to radio legend Fred Waring, “The Man Who Taught America How to Sing,” and other radio choral favorites, all on the home stage of A Prairie Home Companion.

Concert Conversations with composer Jake Heggie at 7 pm on Saturday and 3 pm on Sunday.

Choir of King's College
"I would happily sit in King's College Chapel listening to this choir sing for the rest of my days."
The Times, London

Founded in the fifteenth century, the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge is undoubtedly one of the world’s best known choral groups. While the choir exists primarily to sing the daily services in King’s College Chapel, its worldwide fame and reputation, enhanced by its many recordings, has led to invitations to perform around the globe, and to an extensive international tour schedule. King’s College Choir has been performing abroad since its first overseas invitation in 1936. More recently, tours have taken the Choir to China, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, and other countries in the Far East. On Monday, March 23rd they will be performaing at the Cathedral of St. Paul.

St. Paul's Cathedral Choir of London
There has been a choir of boys and gentlemen at St Paul's Cathedral, London for over nine centuries. The present Cathedral Choir consists of 30 choristers (boy trebles), eight probationers (who will become choristers) and 12 professional adult singers (or Vicars Choral): four altos, four tenors and four basses.

At the very heart of the Choir's being is the ancient monastic tradition of singing daily services.

In recent years the Choir has established itself as one of the major forces in British church music. The size of the choir and its mature, professional tone set it apart from any other comparable group of singers. Outside regular duties in the cathedral the Choir frequently gives concerts and broadcasts and has many notable recordings to its credit. Join them on Tuesday, April 28th at the Cathedral of St. Paul.

Tickets for MPR's Choral Series Package go on sale Thursday, September 11th at noon through the Fitzgerald Theater Box Office. Individual tickets go on sale Thursday, September 18th. Tickets are $42.50, $37.50, and $32.50. A $2.50 Facility Fee will be added to each ticket.
