Two Lanesboro youth tour Europe with the Minnesota Ambassadors of Music


Fri, Aug 10th, 2012
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

Two Lanesboro youth, Megan Kiehne and Kirsten Ruen, recently returned from a 16-day Minnesota Ambassadors of Music tour of seven European countries from July 6 to 21, 2012. The Minnesota Ambassadors are comprised of a select high school band and choir. These students were nominated by their local school music directors based on their musical ability and quality of character.

The group included 234 students and parents as well as 31 staff members, many of them band and choir directors themselves.

The tour itinerary featured five performances each by the band and choir, as well as sightseeing in England, France, Switzerland, Austria, Liechtenstein, Italy and Germany. The group spent four days rehearsing together prior to departure.

The late Dr. Frank Bencriscutto and his wife, Jean, founded the Minnesota Ambassadors of Music in 1989. Dr. Ben was the Director of Bands at the University of Minnesota for many years.

Tour Directors are Joni Sutton and Chip Williams. Sutton is a recently retired band director of 33 years from the Osseo School District. Williams taught for 34 years and retired from Wayzata High School in 2010. He also conducts the band on the tour. This is their 10th trip with the Minnesota Ambassadors. William Krinke, a music teacher for many years in Redwood Falls, is the choir director. Krinke and his wife, Sue, were the Tour Directors prior to Sutton and Williams.

Megan Kiehne played tenor saxophone and Kirsten Ruen played baritone saxophone with the Minnesota Ambassadors Band. Both students participated as altos in the choir. They extend their many thanks to the community for your generous support. They will be sharing their experiences with a presentation on Wed, August 15 at 7 pm at Bethlehem Lutheran Church Guest Night. The event is open to the public.
