The third annual Linda Dryden Vocal Music miniFest will be Wednesday, March 7, in the Central Lakes College gymnasium in Brainerd.

The day begins with a vocal master class from 10 a.m. to noon, involving 200 area high school students joining CLC vocal music students, members of The Legacy Chorale of Greater Minnesota and community members. The five area high schools participating in the festival are Aitkin, Brainerd, Pequot Lakes, Pine River-Backus and Little Falls.
A mass choir rehearsal will run 12:30-2:30 p.m. CLC choir director Sarah Aamot will lead the group in rehearsing and performing two classic works from the choral repertoire-"For the Beauty of the Earth" by John Rutter and Houston Bright's "I Hear a Voice a-Prayin'." Sheet music will be provided.

All events are free and open to the public.
The Linda Dryden Endowment was established through the CLC Foundation by Bob Dryden, a retired CLC theater instructor, after his wife, Linda, died in 2003 from breast cancer. She was an accomplished singer, performer and well-known local businesswoman.

The Linda Dryden Endowment is designed to bring top-quality guest musicians to Central Lakes College to share their expertise, knowledge and training with CLC music students and the community at large. The Legacy Chorale of Greater Minnesota, of which Bob Dryden and his second wife, Sheri, are members, will participate in the Dryden miniFest.
