New Year’s Eve with Dan Chouinard, December 31 from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m.
Plan ahead and make your reservations to spend a memorable evening at WideSpot in Stockholm, Wis. Special guest will be pianist and accordionist Dan Chouinard. Don’t miss out — join in for song, complimentary hor d’ouevres, a champagne toast, dessert, festive stories, and dancing during this just-for-grown-ups evening in Stockholm’s community “living room” (otherwise known as WideSpot Performing Arts Center, recipient of a 2015 Wisconsin Arts Board Creative Communities Grant).
Chouinard is music advisor and co-producer of the St. Joan of Arc Concert Series in Minneapolis. He also served as rehearsal accompanist to Meryl Streep, Lily Tomlin, and Lindsay Lohan on the movie set of the Robert Altman-directed “A Prairie Home Companion” in 2006.
Blending history, memoir, and music, his “Cafe Europa” and “Mambo Italiano” series have been aired on Twin Cities Public Television and broadcast on Minnesota Public Radio, as have his frequent radio collaborations with musicians Ann Reed and Peter Ostroushko, and writer Patricia Hampl.
This New Year’s celebration is perfect for anyone who wants to be home before it gets too late, as well as those who might want to fulfill other plans after the show to party past midnight!
