This IS your generation! Remember 1966 in this rocking throw-back concert of music and history. Chronofon Productions reflects on this turbulent time and the impact it has had on our cultural perceptions and social fabrics of the day, then and now. Presented as a radio show — complete with DJ personalities, tips of the day, and ongoing news — you’ll hear stories and songs from this era we lived through and can’t forget. You won’t want to miss it!

Hear songs from 1966 including "Summer in the City," "Monday, Monday," "Secret Agent Man," "These Boots Were Made for Walkin'," "Sounds of Silence," and many more performed in imaginative arrangements by these artists. Even Dean Magraw leaves his guitar behind to bring a surprising and relevant vocal performance to "Ain't that Peculiar?"!

About Chronofon Productions

Chrono - (pertaining to time) fon - (abbreviation of "fonic", describing something we hear, such as music or a recording of music.

Chronofon Productions is a confluence of four principle Minnesota performing artists — Dan Chouinard, Diana Grasselli, Bradley Greenwald and Prudence Johnson — who together, conceive, research, write, design, direct, and perform musical chronicles of past and present artists, time periods, and places. Their diverse voices and writing and directorial styles complement and challenge one another, to develop dynamic, theatrical concerts for audiences of all ages and eco-ethnic backgrounds.

The artistic goals set forth by this group of experienced collaborators include successfully representing the artistic merit and significance of their subjects through the exploration and exposition of its music, art, culture, and social mirrors, while executing the material with depth, style, innovation and humor.

In collaboration with the Friends of the St. Paul Public Library and Open Eye Figure Theatre, and with support from The Minnesota Regional Arts Council, Chronofon has created sold-out productions for the past several years, including Weill & Brecht - The Berlin Years; Jacques Brel: When We Have Only Love and '66: Talkin' Bout My Generation.
