New Century Sessions
“Best new local music series”— Minnesota Monthly
New Century Sessions is Hennepin Theatre Trust’s on-the-rise, local music series showcasing Minnesota’s most talented artists in an intimate venue where they not only play, but share the stories behind their songs and music. Set in the heart of downtown Minneapolis at the cozy New Century Theatre in City Center, the new 2014 series features a top-notch lineup of: Dessa, one of Doomtree’s most talented hip-hop/spoken word standouts on March 28; Adam Levy, the Honeydogs’ front man in a double bill with Bethany Larson & The Bee’s Knees on April 4; the chart-topping Communist Daughter on May 2, and the soulful Chastity Brown on July 25.
"Art and artists are at the heart the Cultural District,” commented Tom Hoch, President/CEO of Hennepin Theatre Trust. “The New Century Sessions series is a chance for us to open the District further to Minnesota’s most talented artists and offer them a special platform to not only play their music, but share stories about their lives or creative process in a versatile venue like our New Century Theatre."
A special thank you goes to Park Nicollet Health Services for its sponsorship of this series and support for local community artists. The healing comfort of music is an extension of its long-time commitment to the power of music. Park Nicollet offers patients music therapy at its Frauenshuh Cancer Center, Struthers Parkinson’s Center, Melrose Center for eating disorders and Methodist Hospital.
"Music nourishes the human spirit and promotes healing and comfort for our patients,” said David Abelson, M.D., Senior Executive Vice President, Health Partners and CEO of Park Nicollet Health Services, “We are excited to be supporting community artists, and celebrating the power of music with local artists who inspire, comfort and heal through their storytelling and music."
