Performing Arts Series
Powerful performances right here.
Minnesota State University Moorhead's Cheryl Nelson Lossett Performing Arts Series continues to be proactive in reaching out to the Fargo-Moorhead community and the surrounding region. Collaborations with community arts organizations and public school systems create outstanding educational arts experiences for the area's elementary, secondary and university students and teachers.
Through images that reflect the cosmic trinity of Varanasi, India—sacred pilgrimage routes, the Ganges River, and the patron deity Shiva, heightened by the chants of Vedic priests—the choreographers imagine a metaphorical crossing place where one may leave the mundane and enter into the world of immortality. www.ragamaladance.org

The Cyrille Aimée Jazz Quartet
Improvisation is not just a technique for Grammy nominated artist Cyrille Aimée, it’s a way of life. The acclaimed vocalist ventured from singing on street corners in Europe to dazzling audiences at the world’s most prestigious jazz festivals; from sneaking out to sing in gypsy encampments in her native France to acting on Broadway; from braving the notoriously tough audiences at New York’s Apollo Theatre to being called a “rising star in the galaxy of jazz singers” by The New York Times. www.cyrillemusic.com
