Songwriters in the Round #25 at the Hallberg Center for the Arts.

Every two months we bring in songwriters from across Minnesota and Wisconsin to perform their original music in the intimate setting of the Hallberg Center for the Arts, an old turn of the century church that's been repurposed. 

This event was held outside of the art center under our big tents on Thursday, September 10th. 

Songwriters in the Round starts promptly at 7pm.  A wonderful evening of original music at the affordable price of FREE.  Seating is limited so please come early.  Stay after and meet the musicians! This month's performance is has a twist... instead of 3 individual songwriters, we are featuring two songwriting duo's.  This month's songwriters are Susan LaVelle and Matt Dorland who will share the stage with the Katey Bellville Band.
