Some people arrive around 6:30 to help unload and get our equipment out of the way before dinner starts at 7:30. Wear black and white with jackets and the band's blue ties and cummerbunds.

Glen Newton entertained on the grand piano in the lobby before dinner.

From Life at Lyngblomsten, Summer 2003, page 12: "Over 280 guests enjoyed the 16th annual Spring Rhapsody, which raised almost $48,000 to help strengthen one of Lyngblomsten's four outreach programs, Parish Nurse Ministry. ... music filled the air as a pianist played soft music in one room and a string quartet entertained guests in an adjoining room. ... And we topped off the evening with music by the Roseville Big Band."
