Central Square in Glenwood will present Monroe Crossing in concert on Saturday, October 13 at 7:30 p.m. in the historic auditorium.

This five-member bluegrass group entertains audiences with a blend of classic bluegrass, originals and bluegrass gospel music. The members have a strong on-stage rapport and excel in harmonies and arrangements.

Tickets to the concert are $15 for adults and $5 for students. For reserved seating, call the Central Square box office at (320) 634-0400. Tickets will also be available at the door.

This activity is funded, in part, by the Minnesota State Arts Board through the arts and cultural heritage fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the Legacy Amendment.


Central Square is located in downtown Glenwood. The building originally housed the Glenwood High School and was to be torn down after a new school was built. A group of former graduates and community members had a vision for this art deco building. They raised funds to complete a renovation to turn it into a community center and performing arts facility.

Central Square operates as a non-profit organization managed by a board of directors and an executive director. Its mission and purpose is to contribute to the quality of community life by presenting a variety of cultural, recreational and performing arts programs while preserving and caring for an historic building.

Central Square houses a 1000-plus seat auditorium/ theater, a regulation size gymnasium and basketball court, an exhibit hall and an art gallery. Other ections of the building are rented to other businesses and non-profits.
