Earlier this week we mentioned a special concert being given at the Historic Old Salem Church north of Paynesville, MN. That concert was held last night and it's billing was totally correct. It was "FABULOUS!"
Click either the photo to see the "FLASH" version or "QUICKTIME" to see the video story. This is a large file that can take more than 5 minutes to load even with broad band, high speed access.
This story includes great footage of the ornately decorated church, delightful music from the Mary Beth Carlson concert and an exclusive interview with Joel Frank, the sponsor of the entire "FREE" event.
This concert was given in loving memory of his great-grandparents, Christian and Anna (Nehring) Frank who came from Germany with four children in 1871 and settled in the community. They attended Salem Church while raising their family. Today all of the members of the Frank family and their spouses rest in the Old Salem Cemetery across the road from the church.
