50th Anniversary Concert Slated for October 23rd

Bernadine Johnson, who has been involved with TrueNorth’s Cultural Programming since she moved to Fremont in the early 1970’s is organizing another free Sunday Concert we are calling the Jubilee Concert, to celebrate our 50th anniversary.

Over the years, in addition to her work with the Madrigal dinner concerts and the Newaygo County Piano Teachers Association’s slate of programs and events, Bernadine has organized and headlined several Birthday Concert Series events celebrating the music of great composers. For the Jubilee Concert, she is bringing back several local favorites and has asked a few newcomers to offer up musical selections. Those scheduled to perform include; Leslie Anderson, Shaunna Baker, Jack Brooks, Cassie Luchies Dalton, Mick Hanna, Thea Hoekman, Jean Howarth, April Keith, Chris and Jill Kuebler, Gabriel Malone, Christina Tuls, Jim Webb, Kirk and Alexandra Weller, and of course, Bernadine Johnson herself.

The concert will have something for everyone, from pianists and vocalists, to cellists and singer/songwriters. “We are so thrilled to have Bernadine work her magic for us, once again as she brings together a wide variety of talents for this concert,” said our CEO, Bev Cassidy. The FREE concert will take place at the TrueNorth Service Center on Sunday, October 23, starting at 3 pm. Light refreshments including cake will be served.
