Come join us at Art Works and learn to express yourself through music! No experience needed! With instructor Tim Cheesebrow, you will be given all the tools and help you need to find that hidden songwriter in you! As a finale to the class, participants will have the option to have their compositions played by a professional band. However, participants can also choose to never have their compositions played publicly. This class offers each participant the ability to learn and express freely with no pressure for an end product or performance.
For those students that would like to hear their compositions performed, there will be a dress rehearsal on November 1, in preparation for a live performance scheduled at Art Works on November 3!
The class costs $160 per person, but for people with military service history, we are pleased to offer a “pay as you can” registration fee. We are able to completely subsidize the class cost for several participants. Any amount you can pay will stretch our available funds to help more participants!

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

Ananya Dance Theatre World Premiere
Friday and Saturday, Sept. 20 and 21, 7:30 p.m.
ASL- Friday, Sept. 20
The O’Shaughnessy at St. Catherine University
2004 Randolph Ave.
St. Paul 55105
Ananya Dance Theatre (ADT), the leading creator of contemporary Indian dance in the global arts and social justice movement, brings its seventh inspiring production and collaboration to The O’Shaughnessy. They’ll unravel time and unwritten histories in “Sutrajāl: Revelations of Gossamer” as a poet, one of the few surviving humans in an imagined Broken City, bears witness.
In this compelling dance performance, the narrative centers on the life-forms that flicker in and out in the circuitous streets and despair-laden corners of the Broken City.
Throughout Sutrajāl (which means “network of connections” in Bengali), the artists of ADT connect their performance with a philosophy of social justice, creating original dance theater about the extraordinary work and dreams of women around the world, and to inspire audiences through visual and emotional engagement.
The performance is part of the Women of Substance series.
Tickets are $19-$32 (discounts for students, seniors, military, MPR, TPT, groups).
Ticket Office: or 651-690-6700.
