Waconia High School Performing Arts Center


Vocal Ensemble

March 17

Tonic Sol-fa began at St. John’s University in Central Minnesota and includes lead vocalist Shaun Johnson, tenor and vocal percussionist, Greg Bannwarth, and bass, Jared Dove. Together the group reached national prominence with appearances on NBC’s Today Show and in Newsweek magazine. Along the way, they shared the stage with a number of recognizable performers including Jay Leno, Jeff Foxworthy and Lonestar, and were recently part of Garrison Keillor’s 30th Anniversary celebration of A Prairie Home Companion.

Tonic Sol-fa has established itself not only as the most in-demand vocal group in the Midwest, but also one of the most successful independent acts in America. In addition to substantial CD sales of its own independent releases (2,000,000 copies sold), the group has toured extensively throughout the US and abroad, building their base with a steady list of festivals and private shows that eventually led to numerous sold-out tours of theaters and small arenas.

Jenn Bostic "Revival" CD Release Show

June 1

Hometown Sweetheart, Jenn Bostic, will be performing a full band CD release show for her brand new album "Revival," on June 1st in the new Waconia Performing Arts Center. This all ages, family friendly event will feature world class musicians, as well as a few local surprises. "This past year, I boldly stepped into the studio and silenced every voice that told me the music my heart longed to record wasn’t “radio-friendly,” and created a piece of art that is the best representation of my soul. I poured my heart and soul into this album and refused to compromise. It doesn’t fit into a box. It’s an unapologetic fusion of roots, rock, blues, pop, country and gospel." says Bostic.

Produced by six-time grammy award winner Paul Salveson, featuring big brother Jeff Bostic on bass guitar, along with Nashville's finest session players, this album is Bostic's best work to date. She will be showcasing the full sound like never before. Jenn has been touching hearts and winning awards around the world, but never forgets where she came from.

As long-time fans will tell you, SimpleGifts makes musical magic by bringing a modern flair to traditional Christmas carols and hymns. Staying close to the heart of Christmas by avoiding commercial and pop holiday repertoire has become the trademark of this award winning six-piece ensemble.

SimpleGifts combines violin, Celtic whistle and bagpipes, piano, acoustic guitar and percussion with angelic three part female vocals to create a "modern Old-World" sound. There is nothing ordinary about the arrangements this team delivers both in the studio and in concert.

Seen by over 20,000 live audience members last season, this group continues to grow in popularity throughout the Upper Midwest and has successfully transitioned from their early days in coffeehouses and small listening rooms to prestigious performing art centers and larger churches.
