The College hosts "The Secret Life of Children," a musical reflection on parenthood with percussionist Jeremy Craycraft, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 4 in the Mitchell Auditorium on campus.

An assistant professor of percussion at St. Scholastica, Craycraft directs the College's World Drumming Ensemble, Drumline, and Steel Band. He has put together an evening of music that pays homage to parenthood as he reflects upon his three children. Despite the fact that he has lived with them for their entire lives, he realizes that they are slowly becoming independent people. Craycraft celebrates this by performing contemporary works for percussion that have been composed since his first child was born in 2004. Each piece will represent a part of their personality or an aspect of their development.

Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for students. For more information, visit or call 218-723-7000.

The concert is the final installment of this year's Cambiata series, which celebrates changing styles and the enduring value of music.
