A Prairie Home Companion: Good Enough Is Enough


This week, we’re heading to Goshen, Indiana, for a live broadcast from the Sauder Concert Hall at Goshen College.

It’s a singing show from a big town with a rich tradition of harmony and participation in song. The hometown Goshen College Chamber Choir will shore up Michiana’s reputation for choral excellence with sacred and secular pieces.We’re looking to entice the audience to sing along, and hoping to hear big voices from the farthest reaches of the hall.

Indianapolis-born sister duo Lily and Madeleine will sing in breathtaking sibling harmony their songs of longing and heartache and paradise found. And Goshen College student Ethan Setiawan will show us why he recently became the youngest person to be named National Mandolin Champion.

On top of it all: the Royal Academy of Radio Actors — Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman; music director and good-time pianist Richard Dworsky with triple-threat Richard Kriehn on mandolin and fiddle and guitar; and of course the latest News from Lake Wobegon.
