12:00 am WSU Senior University - The Sex Life of Trees
Five 2-hour walking field trips on and near WSU campus, Lake Park and Woodlawn Cemetary. Participants will discover the fascinating sexual strategies of trees and shrubs: some have a single gender, some both genders on the same flower or different flowers, some change genders as they age or their neighbors change, and some primarily reproduce asexually! Along the way, we will also learn to identify trees without their leaves and observe a large variety of spring wildflowers and flowering weeds. People usually assume that spring trees’ greenish blush is leaf growth, but in many cases the opening buds reveal flowers. **Every other Wednesday**

7:00 pm Celtic Memories Concert with the Jennifer Licko Ba
Celtic Memories is being presented for the first time in Minnesota. The Jennifer Licko band will be sharing well loved Irish standards along side of the more obscure and hidden gems that are often unheard outside of the small rural celtic communities in Ireland and Scotland. Jennifer masterfully combines appalachian music of her North Carolina roots with the traditional Celtic music of her ancestors. After years of living and performing in Ireland & Scotland, Jennifer's memories live on through the music she acquired in those Celtic lands. Irish guitarist & vocalist from the Cathie Ryan Band, Patsy O´Brien, was influenced by the  traditional Irish music around him growing up in county Cork, Ireland. Fiddler, Zack Kline described as "Minnesota´s brightest young fiddle talent" by The Cedar Cultural Center, plays jigs and reels with an energy that can´t keep Jennifer from dancing - if she isn´t busy singing, playing bodhran or guitar. 

Apart from the fiddle playing and dancing, the concert will include enduring fan favorites such as Wild Mountain Thyme, Siúil A Rún and Dougie MacLean´s Caledonia. Music full of passion, desperation, hope and inspiration; Celtic Memories celebrates the emotional tone of centuries-old musical and cultural heritage of Scotland and Ireland.

7:00 pm Carthage Women's Ensemble Midwest Tour
The Carthage Women’s Ensemble from Carthage College announces their Spring 2014 Midwest Tour. Located in Kenosha, WI, Carthage, a liberal arts college affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, fosters the rich tradition of choral singing found in Lutheran colleges throughout the United States. The Carthage Women’s Ensemble, under the esteemed direction of Dr. Peter Dennee, has developed a strong reputation throughout Wisconsin and the region as a model for choral excellence. Carthage Women’s Ensemble is a highly select auditioned choir of approximately 50 singers. They perform music from all genres of choral literature—Medieval through the 21st century as well as arrangements of folk and global musics—and have premiered several new works for women’s choir. In recent years the choir has toured regionally throughout Wisconsin and Northern Illinois; nationally to Florida, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.; and internationally to Bratislava, Dresden, Prague, Salzburg, Toronto, Vienna and smaller towns in Austria, Canada, the Czech Republic, Germany, and Slovakia. All performances are FREE and open to the public. A free-will donation will be accepted to offset the cost of the tour.

12:00 am MCA's Demonstration Week
MCA invites parents and family members into the studio to see demonstrations of their young artists' hard work throughout the semester. Classes will run on their regular schedule and instructors will be asked to leave time at the end of each class to accommodate questions.


1:00 pm WSU Senior University - Making Sense of Modern Art
The class takes aim at the often bewildering history of modern art and its relentless flow of styles. Dispensing with a strictly chronological treatment of modernism, this selective approach emphasizes major styles/artists and major themes with respect to art content, artistic form, and expression. Discussion centers on the fundamental question of why artists, starting in the 1880s, abandoned representational styles in favor of alternative conceptions of what the work of art is.
