The colors of autumn are quickly fading but October still promises the most waited event of the fall — the Studio Cruise is starting this Friday with the largest number of artists opening their studios for observing how they work and various pieces to purchase. The maps are available now at the Visitors Information Center (down by Paul and Babe) and online at visitbemidji.com for a copy of the map that can be downloaded.
Thanks from an appreciative audience to the members of the Bemidji Symphony Orchestra for last Sunday's concert; there were few seats left when Beverly Everett, conductor and artistic director, took to the podium. The opening piece, Holst's "Jupiter" was so magical that we enjoyed speeding through space. Music, either instrumental or vocal, will be abundant now that BSU students are back for the new academic year. There is a new vocal director for the choir and this year's Madrigal promises to be unique.
Take some time out today to enjoy the magical, memorable and musical tour de force promised by Beverly Everett, artistic director, of the Bemidji Symphony Orchestra and the teenage protege who will perform. Gareth Cordery is an 18-year-old piano virtuoso who will dazzle you with his performance of Tchaikovsky's beautiful and much-loved "Piano Concerto No. 1."
We hope that you are enjoying this fall as much as we are: the boat is still in the water; nice sunny and wood-splitting days are here. Desserts by Design, the eighth annual delight of savory and sweet editions in support of the Bemidji Symphony Orchestra, is being held at 7 tonight at the Sanford Center. Seating is limited so get your seat, if you need a ticket; please contact Louise Jackson at (218) 209-0065.
There is no doubt about the outcome—glorious sugar maple and oak trees starting to decorate the lovely fall we have come to eagerly anticipate in northern Minnesota...no more tornadoes!
Some of our favorite home town actors are returning to the stage this coming weekend with the Bemidji Community Theater's production of "Bedroom Farce," an adult comedy by British playwright Dan Ayckbourn. Derrick Houle will be directing the play, and the cast includes Dave Moffet as Ernest; Sara Breeze as Delia; Amanda Mix as Jan; Sasha Almendinger as Kate and Norwood Hall as Malcolm. There are two newcomers to BCT for the performance, as well, and they are Gary Rozman, who plays Nick, and Amy Puschinsky, who plays Susannah.
