Summer Night Romance Concerts: Where and Why

It’s been an exciting whirlwind around here lately, and we have succeeded in officially launching ticket sales for our upcoming concerts.

Even if you’ve already read the details on our Facebook announcement earlier this week, look over this post for a little extra info about why these events are special to us.

A Summer Night Romance Concert Production

Join us for an evening of nostalgic music featuring some great Twin Cities talent, including performers from Chanhassen Dinner Theatres, The Guthrie Theater, Cantus, Bloomington Civic Theatre, Chameleon Theatre, and the Minnesota Opera Chorus. You will hear a program that is all about LOVE – early musical theater, classic popular songs, and crooner tunes with a splash of operatic and folk music flavors performed with a jazz trio and some other various instrumentation that you are sure to enjoy.

For reasons that no one ever needs to justify, we just love this music.  Have for as long as we can remember. Nathan’s uncle sings lots of Sinatra and Martin at events, so maybe he has influenced Nathan’s affinity for it. Naomi has used these tunes with older adults casually for fun as well as professionally as a music therapist. Whether in concerts, at nursing homes, or in our own living room, we have had some great times with these tunes.  And who doesn’t like the idea of going out to a whole live concert of classic love songs? 

Musicians for this event will include: Nathan Bird, Andrew Cooke, Stephanie Cousins, Natalie Cromwell, Andrew Foreman, Daniel Greco, Paul HillChristy Jones, Timotha Lanae, Dan MusselmanEryn Tvete, Colyn Tvete, Shahzore Shah.

Enter Promo Code “CHAN50” for tickets half-off

~ Nathan was born in the town of Chanhassen and raised in nearby Excelsior, MN. While the Club is NOT used by the dinner theater for shows, it is a fun, unique space that deserves a little more attention.

~ We are super excited about this venue because 1) We love coffee shops, 2) We love historic old houses, and 3) We’ve been fans of this location since before we even dreamed of music careers ,and it’s always fun seeing different realms of our lives and interests combine. Speaking of which, this house sits pretty much exactly half way between the home where Nathan grew up and the home where Naomi grew up. Coincidental perhaps, but charming nonetheless.

When Ol’ Blue Eyes was born, this venue was 38 years old.

Stillwater Public Library
Friday, August 16, at 8:00pm

~ We are thrilled to hold a concert in the beautiful town of Stillwater. Within a couple miles of this library is where the Ns lived for the first year of their marriage. Naomi would walk from their home on the north hill to this very terrace to write wedding thank you cards. From this library we gained resources for building our music careers and pursuing Nathan’s graduate studies. Once again, talk about combining different circles!

  • like having fun
  • like old love songs
  • like nice people
  • like fantastic musicians
  • like dessert
  • like the Birds

Remember that even if you are unable to attend the concert for some unfortunate reason, we still really want your friends to be able to tell you about it, so please TELL THEM!

If it just kills you that you can’t make it, because you so want to be in this fantabulous event, consider making a financial contribution.  We are still working to cover some of the up-front costs and every dollar helps make it happen. To do so, click on this link, or contact us.  At this time your donation is not tax-deductible.  Nonetheless, it is going to a good cause and will be much appreciated!

Can’t wait to see you – and/or your friends!

Cheers,
Nathan and Naomi Bird

  1. I want to help my email friends navigate all your electronic resources – where is Nathanb’s personal information about each of the performers – their pictures, and which dates they will perform?
