Summer Sundrop Festival

Celebrate summer with The New Standards and friends at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in downtown St Paul!


On Thursday, June 27th, we will be taking over the Ordway with frolicsomeness around every corner.

This brand-new variety show follows a format familiar to fans of The New Standards' renowned holiday shows, with a feel-good summertime twist: an event overflowing with friends old and new, a veritable cavalcade of stars including Tina Schlieske (whose show-stopping rendition of James Brown's "It's A Man's World" wowed audiences at last year's New Standards Holiday Show) and rising star Ashley DuBose who will play songs from her last two records as well as some carefully chosen classics. A top-notch ensemble of regular instrumentalist collaborators and singers including Aby Wolf, Cameron Kinghorn, Lucy Michelle, the Laurels String Quartet and more, will make the night extra special.

We hope you will join us! Resere your tickets at ordway.org.


TNS w/ Itasca Strings

As part of our 2019 Arts Tour grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, we're traveling to Grand Rapids, MN to present a fully orchestrated show with the players from the Itasca Strings.

Satuday, May 11th at 7:30pm. Tickets are available here.

This activity is made possible by voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.


Snow Days and Spring Festival

The Chinese call their New Year (which we are in the midst of) “Spring Festival.” Coming from Minnesota, this has always seemed weird. Even with Chinese New Year occasionally falling as late as February, it just doesn’t seem sufficiently spring-like in the northern hemisphere to say anything about spring. Especially not now. Especially not around here. 

And yet the days are lengthening. 


Soon we will be dancing on grass. Some of you already are!

Let us hasten your journey with some music. Allow us to dream of blossoms together, and to feel festive in our cold, northern way, as we mount drifts 1000 ft high.

Lots coming up! Check out our full list of upcomings, and come out and see us sometime.

And remember, 恭喜发财!
