Fall Gathering:Northwest Co Post Festival of the VoyageurTime: 11:00 am
Join Elite Rabble at the Northwest Co. Fur Post for their annual Fall Gathering, when in the early years of the post, traders, natives, military men, and settlers came together for an autumn celebration of feasting, trading, and merriment. Lots of demonstrations, history, and fun combine for a great day out for visitors of any age. Elite Rabble (that's Dunquin in disguise, playing music of 1760-1815 or so) plays two shows in the interpretive center in the afternoon (exact times to yet be determined; I'll post updates), then we're joined by excellent dance caller Robin Nelson for a torchlight outdoor dance! This is one of our favorite events of the year, and is always great fun.Fall Gathering:Northwest Co Post Festival of the Voyageur»

Premiere of Muter Erd setting of Yiddish poemTime: 2:00 pm
I am excited to announce the premiere of a new work, Muter Erd (Mother Earth), a setting of a Yiddish poem in a song cycle of four poems by four different composers. The work has been commissioned by Minneapolis Yiddish Vinkl and Womenperformhers, and it's fabulous! Yiddish poetry is vibrant, colorful and has been neglected far too long. Come hear this piece of original music, Yiddish poetry, song and spoken word. All this for ten bucks! Such a deal!

The Wind Gave Birth To Me: Song Cycle Poetry and ReadingsTime: 2:00 pm
Join the Minnesota Vinkl, Womenperformhers, local composers as we present our new song cycle of Yiddish poems set to music by four composers. These early 20th c. poems, written by Jewish women, are in the often-neglected but rich "mameloschen", or "mother tongue" of Yiddish, and are rich, earthy and wonderful. The poems and songs are woven together with the history-rich narrative of Alison Morse. A small admission is requested at the door, but worth it! I wrote the "Muter Erd" song, and it was truly inspiring to be on the roster with the other women composers. This has been two years in the making, and it's great; come and listen for yourself. A discussion and complimentary refreshments follow the concert.
