The final concert of our "When There's Good to Be Done" tour throughout Minnesota, funded in part by the MN State Arts Board, was held at the Owatonna Arts Center, on May 4. Here's the link to the video, which was made courtesy of Limberg Productions. Click on the link, then scroll down to the Curtis & Loretta video.
It was a very special afternoon, with a wonderful crowd filling the chairs. The Arts Center is located in the building that was originally the main building of the Minnesota State Public School Orphanage. We sang many of the the songs from the CD, all about real people who overcame great challenges in their lives. But absolutely the most touching were the songs I wrote about two men who grew up at the Orphanage, in the 1930s and 40s, especially because they were with us, in the audience! After the concert, Peter Razor and Harvey Ronglien spoke to the audience and answered questions. It was so very poignant to hear their stories right at the Orphanage where they grew up.
