Sounds of the Fair, Online

Going to the State Fair? Or maybe you're part of the Minnesota diaspora, and are thinking State Fair thoughts even though you won't be getting up to Falcon Heights in person?

To go with this time of year, Bill Morelock has put together a Minnesota music mix that you can listen to online. Mark Wheat of the Current and Dale Connelly of Radio Heartland have contributed their lists too--scroll down to find Classical.

Minnesota composers, Minnesota groups, Minnesota soloists. . . . (And what, you may ask, is Copland's "El Salon Mexico" doing on a Minnesota playlist? Listen, and find out.)
