NEW?ULM - A classical piano performance by Ben Marti of New Ulm, scheduled at 7 p.m., Saturday, March 30, at the Arts Center of St. Peter marks the completion of a recent grant offering to the young artist, from the Regional Prairie Lakes Arts Council.
The Arts Center is located at 315 S. Minnesota Ave. in St. Peter.
Marti was the recipient of the "Emerging Artist" McKnight annual grant program that assists with specific projects contributing to their professional career development. Marti's project included the production of a classical CD and public performance of the work, including the release of the CD at Saturday's performance.
Marti will be performing works by JS Bach, Paul Hindemith and Frederic Chopin. The concert is free and open to the public. An artist reception and CD release will follow the performance.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund."
