Technology is all around us. We rely on it to communicate with others, and use it to access the media we consume. But what if we were to leave it all behind, and commune with Nature, and access its beauty? Join us as we offer a program celebrating technology, television and movies, and then leave it all behind and celebrate the writings of naturalist John Muir: ‘Father of our National Parks.’ This program of entirely living composers features DET’s Digital Wonder Watch, commissioned for the Minnesota All-State Chorus, as well as Minnesotans Libby Larsen & Jake Runestad.

The Minnesota State Band is the Official Band of the State of Minnesota and has been in existence for 120 years (since 1898). The band is the only remaining State Band in the United States. While at one time the band received funding from the State of Minnesota the band is now operated as a non-profit organization with an all-volunteer membership. The Minnesota State Band is one of the few community bands anywhere that regularly travels internationally. The Band has represented the State of Minnesota on six International Goodwill Tours since 1986. While international travel is important, the band sees its primary mission as providing high quality music to the residents of Minnesota.
