Event tickets currently available at the Aurora Public Library

Now available through the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund at the Aurora Public Library: 

The Aurora Public Library is pleased to offer 20 free tickets to the Arrowhead Concert Association performance by the Suchon Wind Quintet with Michiko Otaki at the Goodman Auditorium in Virginia, on Tuesday, February 17th at 7:30 p.m.

Formed in the 1960s, this wind quintet continues to consist of the leading wind players of the Slovak Sinfonietta Žilina, one of the best-known professional orchestras in Eastern Europe. In 1998, the quintet became known as the Suchon Qunitet in honor of Slovakia's most important twentieth century composers, Eugen Suchoň (1908–1993), the founder of Slovak National Modernism. The wind quintet has performed many concerts throughout Slovakia, as well as abroad, has given concerts for children and young people, at gallery exhibitions, and has been heard throughout the world on radio recordings.

This highly virtuosic group of performers will thrill you with their superb playing that includes classical composers such as Poulenc, Mozart, Beethoven and Thuille.

 The Aurora Public Library is pleased to offer 10 free event tickets to the Mesaba Concert Association presentation of Harmonious Wail at the Hibbing High School Auditorium, on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 at 7:30 p.m.

Smoldering vocals laced among the jazzy mandolin and guitar; an infectious blend of continental jazz, swing, gypsy music and melodic vocals.

The Aurora Public Library is pleased to offer 10 free event tickets to the Dallas Children’s Theater Company production of the Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley at the Myles Reif Performing Art Center in Grand Rapids, on Friday, March 13th at 7:00 p.m.
