Aby Wolf will presents “Champagne Confetti” November 1 at Chalberg Theater, Brainerd

Twin Cities based composers and performers Aby Wolf and Eric Mayson will present Champagne Confetti, an evening of new electro-acoustic works featuring a cast of renowned musicians as comfortable in experimentation as virtuosity at The Chalberg Theater at 7:30pm on November 1st, 2018. Blurring the lines between ambient neo-minimalism, chamber music, and electro-R&B, Champagne Confetti delivers a gateway from near-silent meditation to full harmonic abundance, experienced as a union of sonic dreamstates and coursing, rhythmic waves of unbounded sound.

Inspired by the imminent universal need to find footing in an unstable world, these new compositions explore uncertainty, on both a personal and global scale. Through a creative process based in improvisation, and the resulting atypical song structures, Champagne Confetti is a practice in embracing uncertainty. The new work is about choosing community to find belonging in the unknown. Banding together as artists and musicians, and prioritizing solidarity and communion to generate positive change, uniting through artistic growth.

Aby Wolf is the recipient of a 2018 Minnesota State Arts Board Arts on Tour grant that along with support from Central Lakes Community Performing Arts Center (Chalberg Theater) brings this exciting new project and residency to the Brainerd community. Aby Wolf and the ensemble will be engaging a wide range of Brainerd schools, organizations, and community members in workshops pop-up performances and other activities throughout the week of October 29-November 2 including The Center, The Shop, Bethany Good Samaritan, and Area Education Center amongst others.

Public Forum
Fran Barrett discussed concerns regarding the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s (MnDOT) installation of bollard posts on the State Highway 6 and County Road 1 intersection on the west side of the Emily Meats parking area and the Log Cabin flooding issues after the State Highway 6 reconstruction project. There is a concern the posts will prohibit customers from exiting Emily Meats’ small parking area. Barrett requested the City work with MnDOT to not install the posts. Vehicles have been exiting the Emily Meats’ parking area using the pedestrian crosswalk ramps, which is not allowed for safety of pedestrians and vehicles in the intersection. Customers may use the City’s public parking lot directly across State Highway 6 from the business, which includes parking for vehicles with trailers.
