We are so excited to be getting back to in-person concerts and can't wait to see you again! For the safety of our performers, volunteers, and other guests, please where masks when appropriate and practice social distancing. The following concerts will be held at the Mt. Morris Town Park.
Sunday Concert in the Park
June 13, 2021 - 2:00 PM
Come and enjoy an intimate performance of original music with Songa. Singer/Songwriters Mario and Sherry Friedel will take you on a journey with their unique instrumental sound and vocal blend. Their 2020 released recording, “Dreams Are in the Making,” includes songs about love, life, loss, resilience and hope. Multi-instrumentalists, these artists will take you from folk to country to blues to Latin jazz and back again. Rooted in the Nashville songwriting tradition, you won’t want to miss their honest lyrics and pure vocal harmonies. Songa was voted the “fan favorite” in the 2020 Great River Folk Festival Songwriting Contest.
Mario was produced and published by Buzz Cason, Creative Workshop Studio, Nashville, TN and signed to Universal Records in 1971 as a member of White Duck, Jimmy Buffet’s first Coral Reefer Band. In addition to Jimmy Buffet, Mario has shared the stage with John Hiatt, The Allman Brothers, Dr. John, Don Kloetzke, Nashville songwriter Keith Duke, Phillip Russell, Wisconsin blues legend, Howard Guitar Luedke, and award-winning Wisconsin jazz artists Janet Planet and Tom Washatka.
Sherry is a performer, vocal music educator, church music director, and co-producer of children’s recordings Cancionetas and Wisconsin Integrated Student Creations, Volumes 1 and 2. She performed in and produced “’Tis Love That’s Born Tonight,” a recording with the vocal group Serenity in the 1990s. Mario and Sherry’s cd The Gift is a collection of original Christian songs released in 2004.
