Have you made plans yet for the April school vacation? The Minnesingers have — they are headed to Croatia to perform five concerts.

To prepare for their trip, the singing troupe gave presentations last Sunday on the history, culture, arts, food and language of Croatia. And you thought packing a suitcase was enough to get a trip started.

The Minnesingers want to say Hvala, or thank you, to everyone who helped make this trip possible. Upon their return, they will present their spring shows on Saturday, May 4, and Sunday, May 5, at the Performing Arts Center at the regional high school.
