Countering Conflict with Your Heart: Creating peace in Relationshipsis program being offered for Northfield area residents by John Owens, Certified Life Coach. The program will be eight sessions held every other Thursday from 7 to 9 PM (venue in Northfield TBD) beginning January 17 from 7 to 9 PM, and running alternate weeks through April 25. Cost is a voluntary donation; the benefits are priceless.

This course is for anyone wanting to improve relations with family members, coworkers or others in their lives. More information and can be obtained on the website where you can also register for the program or direct questions to John.

An exhibit revealing a children's electronic talking storybook titled, "It Happened One Night on the Milky Way Trail," written and illustrated by Northfield artist Tom Frank, will be held at the Paradise Center for the Arts in Faribault, February 26 through April 16. A family-friendly artist’s reception with kids’ activities and live acoustics with the video book's musicians is planned for March 1, from 5-7 p.m. Visitors to the exhibit will be able to view the creative process -- from hand drawing characters, to developing a storyboard, to writing copy and adding colorized scenes to the finished production.

The Cannon Valley Regional Orchestra will present concerts on the theme "Darkness and Light" on March 9 at 3 p.m. at John’s Lutheran Church Hall, 500 3rd Street West in Northfield and March 10 at 4 p.m. at the Paradise Center for the Arts, 321 Central Avenue North in Faribault. 

The Orchestra will render strong emotional musical statements about some of the basic moods of life, including remorse, joy, adventure, glory, and happiness. These will come to the listener through the genius of Hungarian composer Franz Liszt, German Max Bruch, and Finnish composer Jean Sibelius, whose music incorporates darkness and light in sound.

The two March 2013 concerts will feature cellist Anna Clift.  Ms. Clift will be soloist in Max Bruch’s Kol Nidrei, a musical prayer based on the Hebrew service. The cello imitates the cadences of the synagogue cantor.
