We Are the Willows will play The Étude Sessions at Paradigm Coffee and Music on Saturday, January 10 at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at Paradigm for $15, $10 for students with valid IDs.
An orchestral indie rock band based out of South Minneapolis, We Are The Willows’ music is a blend of pop energy and intricate lyrics. They recently recorded their second full-length album, Picture [Portrait], based off of letters written by frontman Peter Miller’s grandfather to his grandmother during World War II. Their heartfelt arrangements evoke shared nostalgic feelings of love and loss.
The Étude Sessions is a concert series benefiting the three schools of Étude Group: I.D.E.A.S. Academy, The Mosaic School and Elementary School of the Arts and Academics (ESAA). Proceeds raised during concerts provide students with learning opportunities that focus on the content and skills necessary to be successful in a world that increasingly values creativity and innovation. This is accomplished by providing students with opportunities to participate in communities beyond the bricks and mortar of the classroom setting.
Future Session acts include Mike Mangione and the Union, and Brianna Lane & the Navigator’s Club are scheduled to perform during Sessions events.
