Reif and Northern Community Radio kick off 4th Season of CenterStage MN Concerts
Chastity Brown to play Reif Performing Arts Center Sept. 19
The popular CenterStage Minnesota Concert Series is back for a fourth season. This collaboration between KAXE/KBXE Northern Community Radio and The Reif Arts Council has brought some incredible acts to Grand Rapids over the years. The series features Minnesota based musical acts.
Singer/songwriter Chastity Brown is featured as the first artist of the season. She performs Thursday, September 19, 7 p.m. in the Ives Studio Theater at the Myles Reif Performing Arts Center in Grand Rapids.
Based in Minnesota, but with roots in Tennessee, Brown grew up surrounded by country and soul music. In the full gospel church of her childhood, she played saxophone and drums and found her singing voice and a passion for music. Her first show was in Knoxville, TN, and then it was on to Minneapolis. Since then, she’s been featured on NPR’s “Favorite Sessions,” CMT, American Songwriter, the London Times, Paste Magazine and others. Chastity has toured the U.S. and abroad, appearing on the U.K.’s Later…with Jools Holland. For much of 2016, she toured alongside folk icon/activist Ani Difranco.
Homeless and WoundedWarriors-MN presents check to Central Lakes College for Veterans Scholarships
Steve Eisenreich of Homeless and WoundedWarriors-MN presented a $5000 check to Theresa Harsha and Jessie Perrine of Central Lakes College as an endowment for 5 veterans scholarships of $1000 each over the next 5 years. Ms. Harsha is the CLC coordinator for the Veterans Resource Center and Ms. Perrine works in the Scholarship, endowment and trust area of CLC.

At the point where candidates are vetted both CLC and Homeless and WoundedWarriors-MN will perform the interviews. The chosen party will be eligible to apply again the following year.
