Cynthia Shelhart, a
resident of Chesterton, is recognized as an outstanding performer of
traditional and contemporary solo harp music. She performs on both a
68-string double-row harp and other single- and double-row lap harps. Her
original compositions are always included in every performance.
“Despicable Me 2”
continues the story of ex-supervillain Gru as he adjusts to family life and
honest living. The Anti-Villain League has other ideas, though. When a
secret Arctic laboratory is stolen, they recruit Gru to join AVL agent Lucy
Wilde in the investigation.
Gru concludes that
a presumed dead supervillain is the guilty party, but seems to be blinded by
his overprotectiveness toward his girls and his growing feelings for Lucy.
At the same time, his minions are being kidnapped en masse for some dark
purpose. Will Gru find the criminal and free his minions?
“Despicable Me 2”
is rated PG and has a running time of 98 minutes.
This series of
concerts and films is partially funded through generous donations from the
Chesterton-Porter Rotary Club. The final concert will be on Friday, Aug. 8,
when the South Shore Brass Band will perform. The film that night will be
“The Lego Movie,” rated PG.
