Music on a stick

Posted at 2:16 PM on August 24, 2007 by Alison Young

Head over to The Minnesota State Fair tomorrow morning, either in person, on the radio or via the internet. This will be my first experience at The Great Minnesota Get-Together so I'd love to have you along! My guests are: Philip Brunelle and VocalEssence singing American folk-songs; Joe Dowling, Artistic Director of the Guthrie talking about his latest directorial project; three Twin Cities trumpeters who will put a little pizzazz in the morning with their bugle calls; Linda Chatterton floating us into another world with a Haiku-based piece by Edie Hill; and one of next season's stars of the Minnesota Orchestra's Inside the Classics concerts, violinist Peter McGuire giving us the low-down on a concerto that was deemed "unplayable" back in the day, Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto. Hope to see you there!
