Lakes Area Music Festival: A huge success


Starting four years ago, with five guest musicians from the Eastman School of Music, the Lakes Area Music Festival has grown in both the number of performers it hosts and in the size of its enthusiastic audiences.

The fourth season will conclude with a 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 19 concert at Tornstrom Auditorium at the Washington Educational Services Building in Brainerd. A free will offering for the concert will be accepted.
