Sing, Sing, Sing

With a hat-tip to Benny Goodman and Gene Krupa, here are three destinations where you can really “sing, sing, sing” this week.

In Minneapolis, the Source Song Festival returns this week for its 10th year of concerts, workshops and master classes for singers, teachers and all lovers of the vocal art.

In Brainerd, the Lakes Area Music Festival is back for its 15th year with another full-length opera. Donizetti’s Don Pasquale is a breezy comedy that’s perfect for summer, with the Metropolitan Opera’s Wayne Tigges in the title role.

In Fargo, YourClassical MPR’s next Bring the Sing community sing event gives you the opportunity to sing. Bring a friend, and Bring the Sing!
