BRAINERD — The Lakes Area Music Festival’s LAMFcast resumes next month with online presentations by the festival’s leaders and Q-and-A sessions with participants.

The music festival seeks to connect the nation’s best performers and audiences through classical music and inspiring education. The nonprofit has engaged and educated new audiences about classical music in the Brainerd lakes area for more than a decade, a news release stated.

The free and interactive sessions will be accessible via Zoom or Facebook Live and led by members of the festival’s artistic leadership. The online sessions are 10:30 a.m. Saturdays and 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays, starting Saturday, July 2, at .

The sessions begin with a 30-minute presentation related to music and the themes of an upcoming concert. Following the presentation, there will be time for audience questions and discussion.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
