Still Something To 'Dieu'!
 
 
 
 
Our 2014 season is officially over, but we have one more event up our sleeve. We are thrilled to announce our first-ever Lodge Concert featuring acclaimed classical and flamenco guitarist, Tony Hauser. 
 
Tony Hauser’s concert career spans over forty years with hundreds of performances in communities and colleges throughout North America. He has toured with the legendary jazz guitarist Charlie Byrd and leads a band called “The Brasilnutz” that specializes in authentic performances of a variety of Brazilian musical styles not often heard in the U.S. His music has been broadcast on National Public Radio and Garrison Keillor‘s “A Prairie Home Companion”. He also has won the Minnesota Music Award for Guitarists and is the founder of the Minnesota Guitar Society. Mr. Hauser was nominated by Senator Rod Grams to represent the state of Minnesota with performances at Kennedy Center and on the Capitol grounds in Washington D.C. 
 
Here's what folks across the state and country are saying about Mr. Hauser's work:
 

“he is a proficient technicianand skilled interpreter. He played without excessive rubato, letting the shapes of the musical phrases speak for themselves, his tone was clear and full, and his fingers were as remarkably nimble as ever”
Roy Close
Minneapolis Star-Trubune

“last night’s concert should be aninspiration to those “strummers” who seek to find something better in playing the guitar.” Mary McGary Anchorage Times

“...clean technic and sensitive nuances... played with strong dynamic contrast and irresistable elan.”
Werner Zepernick Nashville Banner

Exciting news from the Minnesota State Arts Board!
 
 
Theatre L'Homme Dieu was awarded a multi-year operating grant as part of a pilot program through the Minnesota State Arts Board.  It provides general operating support to high quality, established arts organizations that produce, present, or exhibit works of art; to organizations that provide a broad range of services to artists; and to community arts schools and conservatories that make arts learning available to Minnesotans of all ages and abilities.

Our Mission: Theatre L’Homme Dieu produces and presents exceptional live theatre, fine arts and educational programming that celebrates culture and nurtures community, enriching the quality of life throughout Alexandria, the Lakes Area and Central Minnesota.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
