What is the Bellman?
The Bellman Brown Bag series is a humanities program designed to explore ideas, history, literature, art and culture. Programs are presented on the second Wednesday of each month, noon to 1:00 p.m. Designed to begin and end within each lunch hour, patrons are invited to bring their lunch, if desired, or simply enjoy an hour of learning and entertainment.
It’s a Holiday Celebration!
FIRST DECADE is the title of the December concert of the Spearfish Piano Duet Club on Wednesday, December 11, 12:00 noon at Matthews Opera House Theater in downtown Spearfish.
This will be the tenth year the club has performed on the popular Bellman Brown Bag series. The Spearfish Duet Club began in 2003, under the leadership of Synva Chrysler and Marianne Bieber, as a way for intermediate and advanced pianists to maintain their piano skills and at the same time have fun and enjoy each others’ musical talents. Members of the community as well as BHSU music students and faculty are involved in the performance and rehearsal activities.
The club is actually a loose association of pianists with a passion for four-hand literature. Each pair of partners selects music that is holiday-oriented, or they may choose familiar classical pieces. Dr. Janeen Larsen coordinates and organizes the programs so they are enjoyable for the audience and not too lengthy. The performers also present a more serious classical program each spring at Meier Recital Hall at BHSU.
The program will include regular members Sandra Asheim, Susan Cole, Donna Dettman, Ramona Hauck, Ardyth Helmer, Rita Hicks, Connie Hubbard, Laura Kolb, Janeen Larsen, Dianna Lloyd, Colleen McKirdy, Lori Miller, Angela OShea, and Symeon Waseen as well as several BHSU student participants.
