Our final night of the 2017 Hot Summer Nights Concert Series features Jillian Rae, a multi-talented violinist, vocalist, and songwriter whose creative and dynamic style of violin playing combines spectacularly with her lifelong experience as a performer. Like many of Minnesota’s finest musicians, Jillian Rae grew up in the north on the Iron Range, an environment as open to country, folk (and yes, polka) as it is to pop, rock and blues.
Growing up in a music-loving household, Jillian was hooked early when she began taking violin lessons at age seven. She began to sing, dance, and perform, and has been working hard at perfecting her art ever since. Jillian has been a heavy hitter in the Minnesota music scene for years, playing with as many musicians as humanly possible–on stage, in the studio, or both.
The Hot Summer Nights Concert Series is a series of FREE concerts scheduled for the outdoor-indoor amphitheater at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College. The popular performances are open to the public and will be held from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. every Thursday evening for four weeks beginning on July 6 and concluding on July 27. All concerts will be held rain or shine under the dome of the college’s spectacular amphitheater. (The concerts are moved indoors in case of inclement weather.)
Each entertaining evening of music is designed for family fun and for people of all ages. Concert-goers are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets, or seat cushions to sit on. Beginning at approximately 6:15 p.m. each Thursday concert evening, the staff and students from the college’s Veterans Resource Center will be grilling and selling tasty food items from the B&B Market including hamburgers, hot dogs, and bratwurst as a fundraiser for the student organization on campus.

Testimonials

I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.

It is awesome here at the FDLTCC Education Program because it is like a family here, if you need help or are struggling with anything, you have quite a few people who will help you out.

I chose FDLTCC for a fresh start in life. It had been two years since I graduated High School and I wanted more than just working a 9-5. I was living in Florida at the time, and I had an opportunity to travel the world doing what I love playing the game of basketball.
