Start your Saint Paddy's celebration early, on Mon., March 9, with a concert by Celtic group Goitse at Hesston Mennonite Church -- Bethel students, pick up your free tickets in Thresher Shop.

Hesston-Bethel Performing Arts will bring Goitse to the stage for the final concert of the 2019-20 season.

Goitse appears at 7:30 p.m. March 9 at Hesston Mennonite Church on the Hesston College campus.

The name Goitse – pronounced “Go-wit-cha” – is an informal Gaelic Irish greeting that means “come here.”

The Queen’s Cartoonists perform for the eyes, ears and funny bone

The Queen's Cartoonists

The next Hesston-Bethel Performing Arts show, Friday, Feb. 7, on the Bethel campus, features great music and classic cartoons.

You might think a group calling itself the Queen’s Cartoonists would be British – and you’d be wrong.

The six members of the ensemble are actually from Queens, New York, which is just the first taste of the plays on words, puns and general hilarity the QC bring to the concert hall.

Cartoons, however – classic to contemporary – are definitely part of the group’s goal to get people of all kinds to enjoy jazz and classical music.
