  • Music has been called the universal language. The month of April affords numerous opportunities for Montevideo and area music lovers to attend some very special events.
    I hope many of you had the opportunity to attend Montevideo High School’s production of “Oklahoma.” The singing and acting talent displayed by our high school actors and actresses was outstanding.
    Congratulations and thank you to the cast and orchestra, producer Dan Hampton, assistant director Sam Hathaway and orchestra director Tim Domka for their hard work and dedication to making this huge undertaking a big success.
    It will be interesting to see what Mr. Hampton comes up with two years from now for the next high school musical.
    Within the next week there will be performances at the Fine Arts Center by several world-class professional musicians.
    Tonight (Thursday), the United States Air Force Heartland of America Band “Brass in Blue” will present a concert at 7 p.m. that is open to the public. Free tickets can be picked up at Montevideo Publishing.
    On Friday, at 7:30 p.m., the Prairie Arts Chorale, comprised of standout vocalists from our area, will perform at the Fine Arts Center. Tickets are available at Thrifty White Drug in Montevideo.
    Montevideo High School’s Flood of Jazz is coming up Friday, April 27, at the Hollywood on Main, featuring the high school jazz band and choir and the middle school jazz band.
    If you’ve never been a member of the Minnesota Valley Community Concert Association, you’re missing out on a great entertainment value. For just $40, you can attend four high quality shows in Montevideo as well as similar shows at Redwood Falls and Marshall. See page 1B.
