Singer/songwriter Amber Norgaard will perform at Arts on Grand in Spencer at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15. The concert is open to the public. There is a $10 suggested donation, with all proceeds going to Norgaard.

Growing up on a farm outside of Spencer, Norgaard was involved in band and choir, and was the Tiger mascot her senior year. She graduated from Spencer High School in 1992. After receiving her bachelor's degree in nursing at Creighton University in Omaha she worked as a nurse in the remote villages of the Dominican Republic. She then worked in Oregon at a clinic for migrant Hispanic people, and eventually settled in Alaska, working with the Native Alaskan population. It was during this time that Norgaard discovered music was a universal language that could connect people beyond barriers of language and culture.

In 2004 Norgaard left her Alaskan lifestyle to pursue a musical dream. Since then, the nurse-turned-musician has released three full-length albums, all of which are available at Arts on Grand. She was voted the 2007 Up & Coming Artist of the Year at the Tucson Area Music Awards and has received several honors from international songwriting competitions. She is now a resident of Tucson, Ariz.
