    Comments Off on Winter Songs & Carols

    Friday, Dec. 13 @ 7:30pm to 9pm, Manitou Winds will be performing their annual “Winter Songs & Carols” at The Leelanau School, located at 1 Old Homestead Rd., in Glen Arbor, MI.

    The event is FREE to attend; Goodwill donations to benefit art/music programs at The Leelanau School and Manitou Winds.

    Performed in the festively-decorated dining hall, this special presentation is a chance to hear our one-of-a-kind program performed in an intimate setting welcoming our friends, neighbors, and also newcomers.

    More than a concert filled with holiday-themed music, Winter Songs & Carols is an invitation to celebrate the entire season of winter. Our annual winter presentation brings together the entire ensemble performing on a wide variety of instruments in an eclectic program of traditional carols and original compositions.

    Our 2019 program will feature some of your favorites from past seasons while boasting seven brand new works including familiar holiday tunes and a few surprises you definitely won’t hear anywhere else. The program also includes selected poetry and prose to get you in the holiday spirit: an inspiring mix of music and spoken word to create a contemplative start to the season. Join us and our special guest, soprano Emily Curtin Culler, as we welcome winter home to Northern Michigan.

    Comments Off on Winter Songs and Carols

    Manitou Winds celebrates the coming season with a concert of “Winter Songs & Carols,” December 7, 7:30 pm at The Leelanau School, 1 Old Homestead Road, Glen Arbor. An evening intertwining chamber music with song and spoken word, the annual concert is sponsored by the Glen Arbor Arts Center. It’s open to the public without charge.

    The ancient Celts divided the year into a light half (May-September) and a dark half (November- April), seeing the dark half as the beginning. Inspired by this traditional view of the seasons, Manitou Winds created a program of music exploring winter as a beginning rather than an end. The eclectic program will contain both traditional music and original compositions performed on colorful combinations of instruments, reflecting a sense of optimism for what lies ahead in the New Year. 

    Founded in 2014, Manitou Winds is a versatile chamber ensemble comprised of five musicians who perform on many different instruments throughout their programs. In this December concert, Emily Curtin Culler, soprano, and Jan Ross, narrator, join the quintet. For more information please go to GlenArborArt.org, and click on EVENTS. No reservations required.

    Comments Off on Old Friends, A Simon & Garfunkel Tribute Show

    Old Friends is a stunning recreation of Simon & Garfunkel’s 1981 Concert in Central Park. Simon & Garfunkel’s Concert in Central Park was one of the largest and most beloved concerts of all time. Although it was attended by over 500,000 people, most of us didn’t have the opportunity to attend this amazing show. This upbeat 90 minute show will take the audience back in time to that cool September night in New York City when Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel reunited for a free concert.

    Mrs. Robinson, Homeward Bound, Bridge Over Troubled Water, The Boxer, Scarborough Fair, The Sounds of Silence…these are just a few of the featured songs that have made Simon & Garfunkel one of the most successful and beloved artists of all time.

    Nick Foresman and Jason Elsenheimer recreate this awe inspiring show with attention to every detail. They pay ultimate homage to this amazing American duo and stays true to the beauty of their timeless songs. Complete with a full 8 piece backup band, Nick and Jason’s warm blending harmonies and crisp guitar work recreate the sound, look and feel of this legendary duo in their most famous performance ever. Remember the songs, remember the harmonies, remember the mood and the magic…

    A free will offering will be taken to benefit Glen Lake Young Life, Empire Food Pantry, and Neighbors Helping Neighbors.

    Comments Off on Music on the Mountain – Levi Britton

    Levi Britton is an indie/folk/rock artist who hails from Traverse City, MI.  Growing up around music sparked his drive to make it his profession. At age 20 Levi moved to Chicago, playing down in the subways, Potbelly restaurants, and any gig he could find.  Eventually Britton co-founded his band, Down the Line that went on to release 5 albums, and toured the country for ten years with artists such as The Gin Blossoms, Pat Benatar, Peter Frampton, America, Keith Anderson, Lighthouse, and others.

    In 2011, Levi and DTL band mate Dan Myers formed Stolen Silver, releasing two albums—most recently in June 2014.  Stolen Silver has recently been touring with actor Gary Sinise and The Lieutenant Dan Band, playing stadiums and military bases in support of U.S. troops and their families.

    In addition to playing with Stolen Silver, 2014 launched Levi’s solo career at a whole new level.  After years of fans clamoring for a solo project, Levi hit the studio to record all new, original music.  His first solo record, “Inside” is set to be released in mid-2015.
