 “Crazy About You”

 Elisa Korenne’s latest song and story concert is called “Crazy About You”.  The show combines stories, songs, anecdotes, and music that examine the fine line between sanity and insanity, that line’s historical shift, and the nature of how individuals don’t always live on one side of it.   In addition, she hopes to use the show as an opportunity to open up a conversation about mental illness and how it can affect a community for better and worse.   Her performance will be held at the Robertson Theatre, 600 Colfax Avenue SW, Wadena on Sunday, June 18 at 2:00 p.m.  The concert is free but seats may be reserved by emailing 603wchs@arvig.net or calling 218 631-9079.
