Concert for Kids Featuring Gaelynn Lea
Join musician and composer Gaelynn Lea on Thursday, June 8, at 2:00 p.m. for an educational children’s concert featuring her original music. Kids will learn to use a loop to record sounds and add layers to the music they are playing. This program is free, thanks partly to Minnesota Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund funding.
