The weather was winter-snow and slippery. I wore a dress and heels. It is too slippery for this. Where casual clothing and booths or shoes with good grip. You have to walk quite a ways and up a ramp and stairs that can be slippery to the clubhouse..

We loved the venue for this concert! It was very much like relaxing in a good friends living room by the fire, listening to Christmas Carols on the piano. The featured singers and other musicians were great!

A wonderful, intimate music experience. Kurt Metzger is a VERY talented man - awesome pianist, brilliant composer and a very warm, humble man. We really enjoyed the music and the venue, and the homemade cookies when we left.

About the Ticket Supplier: Kurt Metzger Music

At the end of 2008, the nation’s economy was on the brink of collapse. Many people were unsure what was going to happen to them and their families. During that time of darkness and insecurity, Kurt Metzger’s words resonated deeply:

“What will make the warmest Christmas? What will make the season bright?” he wrote. “A difference I will make with each new day I live. I won’t be one who takes more than I will choose to give.”

At the premiere of his new song, “The Warmest Christmas,” (with the boys choir, tenor, and strings soaring higher and higher in the final refrain toward a powerful climax) Kurt received an instant standing ovation. Without exception, that song still moves people to stand and applaud every time it’s performed, and it now serves as the grand finale of his annual holiday concerts of the same name.

In the 18 years since Kurt Metzger moved to Minnesota, he has written and co-produced a complete musical, a full-length pageant (twice), a modern oratorio, and a large assortment of pieces for piano, string ensembles, choirs, etc. And music is just his hobby on the side.

More recently, for the past several years Kurt has performed in and produced the annual holiday concert titled “The Warmest Christmas.” Each year, Kurt composes a new piece of music that is debuted at the concert. And each year, the audience leaves wanting to hear more.

People often ask, “Where do I get a copy of that? Where can I get the sheet music?” They are struck by the beauty and power and the emotion it stirs up in them. Kurt’s music is not only passionate and rich, it touches listeners on an emotional level.

Word of Kurt’s talent has spread slowly from friend to friend over the years. But everyone who gets to know him is impressed by his music and his kindness. A few years ago, Kurt became friends with the founder and the artistic director of the award-winning North Star Boys Choir. They commissioned him to write a song for their group, and then they invited him to sit on the board of directors.

Of course, Kurt’s music would not be as rich and full as it is without his family. Their love for him, and his for them, enables him to compose from deep inside his heart. That strong devotion forms the core of his inspiration.
