Lyric Center celebrates ‘Range of the Arts’

Every year the Lyric Center for the Arts in Virgina, MN, hosts the “Range of the Arts” festival, a multi-day collection of workshops and gallery exhibits. Range of the Arts 2013 begins today.

New this year is tomorrow night’s 6:30 p.m. live variety show at The Loft at 516 1/2 Chestnut Street. The event will include music, poetry, storytelling, comedy and more performed by local artists and up-and-comers. Tickets are $10 at the door.

The Lyric Center for the Arts is part of an ongoing project to renovate and revitalize the historic Lyric Opera House in downtown Virginia. This extraordinary opera house was a jewel of the North before falling into disrepair years ago. But the main components of the place remain viable and they are raising the funds necessary to refurbish the Lyric. I’m hoping that it works out so we can broadcast the Great Northern Radio Show there someday.
