Music in Owatonna is celebrating its 10th event. According to organizers, its success has been due to commitment of volunteers and patrons.

This event is funded, in part, by the Minnesota State Arts Board through the arts and cultural heritage fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the Legacy Amendment vote of the people of Minnesota on Nov. 4, 2008.
