ST. PAUL, Minn. — The 2013 Lakes Area Chamber Music Festival is currently underway in Brainerd, Minnesota.

The repertoire at the festival runs the gamut, but this performance from the 2011 festival can be described in one word: fun!

The Trio for Oboe, Bassoon and Piano by Francis Poulenc is a work that is pure delight; it seems to wear its hat at a jaunty angle.

In this week's regional spotlight, the spirited performance of Poulenc's Trio by oboist Kevin Pearl, bassoonist Norbert Nielubowski, and pianist Timothy Lovelace will be sure to lift your spirits.
