WACAC Introduces Song Writers to the area

Song Writers in the Round Series at the Hallberg Center for the Arts

Presented by the Wyoming Area Creative Arts Community, this second in the series of Song Writers in the Round takes place at the Hallberg Center for the Arts at 7pm on April 28, 2016.

This intimate setting introduces three songwriters seated in the main gallery of the arts center, taking turns singing their own songs adding comments about the music – and occasionally accompanying each other instrumentally and on harmony vocals. 

The artists in this performance come to perform at this event from across Minnesota, and include Larry Seuss, Mark Grim and Wayne Hamilton.

Larry Suess is a multi-time inductee into the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame. Larry’s music can be described as "a melodic, progressive hybridization of rock, folk and jazz…..soaring songs of love, longing and wonder that shine harmonically".

Mark Grim is a musician that relentlessly hones his craft by playing out all over Minnesota. His songs will give you cause to reflect, as well as laugh, at the real life characters that are portrayed. 

Award-winning performing songwriter Wayne Hamilton served as MAS (Minnesota Association of Songwriters) President from 2007 through 2015. Wayne delivers "music with a sense of humor and southern style." 

This delightful musical event is free and open to the public.  This is a great opportunity for visitors to meet and hear these artists, as well as other musicians and music lovers from throughout the region.

The Wyoming Area Creative Arts Community was formed by an alliance of artists, musicians, performers, photographers, and writers, with a goal of enriching the quality of life in the Wyoming area by facilitating inspirational venues where regional, national, and international cultural activities can illuminate, educate, and entertain.

This arts community is committed to celebrating the diversity of arts in the region by offering an array of affordable cultural opportunities and experiences designed to appeal and be accessible to all. 

The WACAC was recently awarded a grant to improve ADA accessibility to the main gallery at the Hallberg Center for the Arts, located at 5521 East Viking Blvd, Wyoming.  The grant will include funding for new front steps and walkways with a ramp for wheel chair access.  Work is expected to begin in May.
