    One of Central Minnesota's most-beloved performers, Andrew Walesch, is about to take us on a unique musical journey through the American Songbook. The four-part series will feature the music of George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, and Rodgers & Hart. The shows will run for one night only in the months of February, March, April, and May and a four-concert pass is available now. Single show tickets will NOT go on sale until mid-January, but series passes are on sale now for $76, a savings of $8 off the single ticket price!

    Starting at an early age, Cole Porter had completed his first song, Song of the Birds, by the age of ten. At the age of 37 in 1928, Porter introduced his first Broadway show, Paris, which featured songs such as Let's Do It, Let's Fall In Love, which is now considered a timeless, sophisticated piece. The next year, Porter created Fifty Million Frenchmen, featuring You Do Something To Me and You've Got That Thing. Although the 1920's were important years in Porter's life, nothing could compare to the 1930's. In this decade, it seemed that Porter spat out hit after hit after hit with no foreseen end! Among his hit shows were The New Yorkers, Gay Divorce, Jubilee, Dubarry was a Lady, and Red Hot and Blue. In addition, Porter wrote the score for many Hollywood musicals (including Born to Dance and Rosalie). In 1948, Porter wrote Kiss Me Kate, a musical based on Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. It ran for over 1,000 performances. The next year, he came out with Anything Goes, which almost paralleled Kiss Me Kate's success. Towards the end of his career, he added hit like Can-Can, Silk Stockings, and High Society.
