LAMF

The Lakes Area Music Festival(LAMF) creates ongoing arts experiences throughout the year for adults and youth in the Brainerd Lakes Area.  Each summer LAMF organizes an extensive series creating accessible chamber music over the course of several weeks.  This summer, 53 unique events are happening over the course of 22 days.  LAMF Executive Director Scott Lykins spoke on the morning show about the line-up.  Orchestra concerts, wine and beer tastings, professional ballet,  and outdoor yoga classes - one of which will be accompanied by Lykins, a professional cellist, another will be accompanied by a string quintet - are just a sampling of the offerings LAMF has created this summer.  LAMF outreach also includes concerts and education at area libraries, jails, childrens centers and a variety of other locations around the Brainerd Lakes Area.  Most events are free to attend with LAMF asking for a donation in lieu of ticket costs.

DFL Representative Debra Hilstrom is traveling the state talking with Minnesotans as she campaigns to become Minnesota's next Attorney General.  She stopped by the KBXE studio in Bemidji to discuss why she's running.

On the first Friday of every month, we connect with three women around the listening area who help us discover the arts and cultural happenings across the KAXE/KBXE region.

Shawn Kiefer and Parker Bruns will compete in the USA Special Olympics July 1st thru 6th in Seattle, Washington.   Shawn stopped by the KBXE studio to chat about how he's preparing.  He was joined by Shannon Murray, Community Outreach Specialist for Bemidji Area Special Olympics, and Lisa Bruns whose son Parker Bruns is also a competitor.  

Lou Ferreri is a mixed media visual artist whose 120 piece show is currently on display at the Watermark Art Center in Bemidji.  His exhibit, "The Internal Affairs of Mr. Invincible" is an extensive collection of intricate, elaborate doodles created on the editorial sections of the New York Times.  Twenty five of those works have an accompanying essay gifting the viewer with even more depth, context and understanding to those associated pieces.  All of the works are cholk full of a unique balance of symbolism and relatable images as well as whimsy and gravity.  The twenty five with accompanying writings are collected and displayed in the book, "The Internal Affairs of Mr. Invincible."
