When Jarvi picks up a kantele and plays, she is also picking up a set of musical traditions, a history, a mythology, and an art form. In addition to her own compositions, Jarvi is known for her intimate and authentic interpretations of tangos, waltzes, gypsy music, ballads, jazz standards and cabaret songs from around the world. This program is made possible in part by a Community Arts Grant from the City of Carlsbad’s Cultural Arts Office.

Time: 10:00pm. Age restrictions: All Ages. Dear Good Friends of Grace Minnesota, Wishes for the Sky, and Don’t you feel it too? We have a new project to tell you about and a unique offer for you—The Lullaby Experiment. On June 4-5, as part of the overnight Northern Spark festival, we are hosting a sleepover project at the Walker Art Center. This will be a rare chance to experience the Walker in a new way while exploring the affection of lullaby singing and the receiving of that affection as sleepers. The work is created with CITYDESKSTUDIO and amazing local singers, including Leslie Ball, Diane Jarvi, and others. There are a very limited number of spots to experience this work of art fully, and we are reserving a certain number of spaces for you. If you are interested in this experiment, please email me back by this Thursday, May 26. We are looking for people who would like to bring their pajamas and bedding to spend a night letting go of their protected, daytime selves in search or their funny, loving, nighttime selves. We are looking for 30 sleepers and 6 volunteers (who will also sleep). We know sleeping over at the Walker can be out of your comfort zone, but we are prepared to make this a fun and interesting experience. More information about the project can be found at www.graceminnesota.org. As always, our art is participatory, so we hope you can make this work with us. Our many thanks, Marcus & Grace Minnesota
