"The Story of Music, Stories of Home" to be performed at the Belgrade Library May 17

 "The Story of Music, Stories from Home", created by Gary Holthaus and Lauren Pelon, combines music, stories, and poems to explore our sense of place, home and community. 

Holthaus is the author of three books of poetry and several collections of essays, and has been awarded a fellowship in poetry from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Pelon has been praised for her soprano voice and her performance on approximately 25 ancient and modern wind, string and free reed instruments.  She is a 2010 recipient  of a Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant Award for her work as a composer.

Please join us for this special event at the Belgrade Public Library on May 17, 7 p.m.  You may register online, or call the library at 320.254.8842 for reservations.

This program is funded in part with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
