The Northeastern Art Network is Pleased to Present the 2013-2014 Big Sky Concert Series to Our Community


Chinook Winds

This year’s series features exciting live theatre and a kaleidoscope of musical entertainment for all ages. New to this year will be the organization’s partnership with the MonDak Heritage Center to provide quality entertainment for our community. All shows will now be featured at the MonDak Heritage Center at 7 p.m.

September 17th – Montana Repertory Theatre

The first performance of the season begins with The Montana Repertory Theatre’s production of “Of Mice and Men and Rock and Roll”. In this 50-minute comedy by Jay Kettering, a young John Steinbeck, on his way to becoming a great writer, sits in the driver’s seat next to his faithful dog, Charley. He has picked up a teenage hitchhiker with the heart and soul of a rock n’ roller, and together, they will travel across America, navigating their way through space and time. But hang on, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride as you are taken on a road trip through the literary landscapes of John Steinbeck!

October 17th – The Lone Mountain Trio

Enjoy an evening of the blues and folk with inventive mandolin solos, driving rhythm and tight harmony vocals from this Montana trio featuring Kevin Fabozzi (Montana Mandolin Society), singer/songwriter John Lowell, (Kane’s River & Growling Old Men) and mandolin & guitarist Tom Murphy.

November 7th – Bill Bowers

One of the most acclaimed mimes in the world today, actor and storyteller Bill Bowers has performed throughout the U.S. and Canada, and Europe. He appeared on Broadway as Zazu in Disney’s THE LION KING, and as Leggett in THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL. His original shows, IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING, NIGHT SWEETHEART, NIGHT BUTTERCUP and UNDER A Montana MOON have been produced off Broadway and received critical raves.

February 6, 2014 – Six Appeal

Swearing off instruments, Six Appeal uses a cappella singing to span decades of classic oldies, chart toppers and catchy original tunes. Featuring vocal dexterity and adventurous song selection, the 2012 National Harmony Sweepstakes Champions explore all genres with a far-reaching repertoire that will surprise and captivate any audience regardless of the setting. Despite their cheeky group name, the antics of these six young gentlemen provide a good-natured atmosphere for their electrifying performance. A Six Appeal show will split your sides, feed your musical sweet tooth and leave you wondering how in the world they pulled it off just with the voices.

March 20, 2014 – Chinook Winds

Six Appeal

As the professional resident wind quintet of the Great Falls Symphony, members of the Chinook Winds Quintet serve as principal players in the Great Falls Symphony Orchestra as well as present chamber music and interactive school programs and residencies throughout Montana and the Northwest. The Chinook Winds have been performing throughout the region since 1992, both as a non-traditional woodwind trio and now as traditional wind quintet. Their performances have been praised for their excellent choice of literature, technical proficiency and wonderful artistry.
