Our 82nd season opener, “Michigan Chillers,” is an exciting collaboration with acclaimed Michigan author, Johnathan Rand. Johnathan is best known for his Michigan Chillers and American Chillers young adult book series. And as luck would have it, the Michigan Chillers series has a new publication, the Sault Set. Marie Sea Monster, being released just in time for the concert!

Johnathan is a Michigan native and has lived in various cities in the Lower Penninsula. He frequently visits and clinics with young writing students helping to share the important message of literacy.

On October 21, Johnathan will tell his stories accompanied by the choir. Children (and adults) are encouraged to come in costume and Johnathan will be staying following the concert to sign books!
