Minnesota’s Ordinarily Unsung Concert

Minnesota’s Ordinarily Unsung Concert is an award-winning concert series about unsung, unique, and unusual people in Minnesota history. Based on stories of real Minnesotans collected by nationally-acclaimed singer-songwriter and educator Elisa Korenne, Minnesota’s Ordinarily Unsung concerts celebrate Minnesota’s 150+ years as a state. There’s sure to be a song or monologue about someone near you written in honor of Minnesota’s Sesquicentennial.

Ms. Korenne is gaining a reputation for her songs about characters and events that aren’t talked about in history class, and she has mastered the art of telling those untold stories from the stage. Since moving to Minnesota from New York City last year, Ms. Korenne has focused her sharp musical storytelling on characters from Minnesota’s past. Minnesota’s Ordinarily Unsung project is the Minnesota version of the national Ordinarily Unsung project createby Ms. Korenne, which has received support from the Jerome Foundation, the Ucross Foundation, the Hedgebrook Foundation, the New York Mills Cultural Center, the Minnesota Sesquicentennial Commission, and others.

Minnesota’s Ordinarily Unsung concerts are feasts for the ears and the soul. They inspire audiences with musical character studies and narratives that feature Elisa’s warm, rich voice, and they are interspersed with Elisa’s characteristic humor and love for audience participation.

Programming is supported in part by the Arts & Cultural Legacy Fund (ACHF).
