  • get tips from The Bakken Trio on key details to listen for in the music
  • hear The Bakken Trio's live performance of a movement of From the Monkey Mountains
  • explore what you hear through Z Puppets’ guided drawing activity

Each event will stand alone as a complete experience - or try them all! Classical music lovers and "not-so-much"-ers welcome. Free. Designed for ages 12-adult and youth ages 8-11 accompanied by their adults. Registration is required for each person attending.

This activity is funded, in part, by the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council through an appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State’s general fund.
