The History Theatre’s annual benefit and auction treated fans to tunes from Minnesota’s greatest hitmakers. Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while mingling before the performance, dubbed the Great Minnesota Songbook. The downtown St. Paul theater entertains, educates and inspires audiences through works that celebrate Minnesota’s history. Following the program, guests were treated to dessert and a Champagne toast before leaving the theater, no doubt still humming tunes from the evening.
