Poster by Kari Alberg - click to view larger sizeThe Northfield Youth Choirs(NYC) wind up their season with two special events that are open to the public this weekend. NYC's annual spaghetti dinner and silent auction will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday at St. John's Lutheran Church. A suggested donation is asked of $7 for adults, $5 for children 5 to 12, and free for those under 5, with a family maximum price of $24.

On Saturday, the choirs will perform their spring concert, "Come Make a Home," at 4 p.m. in the Northfield Middle School auditorium. Admission is free.

The concert's theme, "Come Make a Home," is named for the piece performed by the NYC at the Governors Ball in December. The piece, commissioned for the youth choirs and written by Northfield residents Dan and Christine Kallman, was choreographed and will be danced by Shari Setchell.

"This is only the second time this piece will be performed in Northfield," said artistic director Liz Shepley. "Anyone who wasn't able to hear its debut at the Governors Ball will have a second chance this Saturday."

The concert's poster was illustrated by Kari Alberg. Kari has donated a limited edition printing of this illustration to NYC. Ten prints, signed and numbered by the artist, will be available for sale at the spaghetti dinner in addition to the many other silent auction items.

Amy Boxrud is the Manager of the Northfield Youth Choirs
