Sara Thomsen in Concert

“Thomsen’s soulful voice, poetic lyrics and unforgettable melodies cut through to the heart and the soul of human experience,” proclaims the Minnesota Women’s Press. With a voice rich as the best mid-west soil, Sara's songs carry you inward and outward—in, to the particulars of your own life, and out—into the shared humanity of us all. Her performance style is easygoing and full of humor and depth, capturing the audience’s engagement. Sara’s music gently enfolds and unfolds the listener.

Sara will sing songs selected from her six solo albums, especially her latest album, Song Like A Seed. Increasing wonder and awareness, deepening spiritual connection, and widening social engagement through song is at the heart of her work. 

Join us for a moving and enjoyable afternoon that cannot fail to lift your spirit.  This event is the annual fundraiser for Siena Retreat Center. A silent auction will take place before the concert begins and during intermission. Come bid on unique, handcrafted items; gift certificates and more.

Sunday, April 18, 2021
Doors will open at 12:30pm. The concert begins at 2:00pm. You may bid in the silent auction when doors open.
Ticket price: TBA

Sara grew up surrounded by a family and community that loved to sing.  From listening to her father sing lullabies and onward, Sara’s life has been infused with music. She is a staunch supporter of struggles for human dignity and ecological sustainability. Slowing down enough to see and hear the vibrant wonder of the commonplace is her work and play.  All this can be felt in her music. Whether it is a song welcoming a newborn, protesting a policy, depicting night falling or describing a loved one, her music is alive and pulsing.
