Frozen Apple Concert Kicks Off January 21st

The Apple Valley Arts Foundation is offering a remedy to the wintry Minnesota desolation with its Frozen Apple concert series, which will feature a sunny mix of Latin pop, folk, jazz, funk, and soul.

The Valley Middle School percussion band will open the Jan. 21 concert at 5:45 p.m., followed by Harold Torrence at 6:15 p.m.

On Feb. 4th the Frozen Apple will play host to acoustic artist Michael Monroe, whose music is a blend of folk, jazz, and reggae.

The series concludes March 3 with Menage a Neuf, a nine-piece Twin Cities funk and soul band that's led by three female vocalists and covers artists such as Aretha Franklin, Amy Winehouse and Sharon Jones.

Admission is free to all the concerts at the community center located at 14603 Hayes Road. Food and beverages from Enjoy restaurant, Famous Dave's and other local vendors will be available for purchase at each of the performances.
