Full day in Alexandria

By Lindajoy Fenley

Alexandria welcomed the Israeli Ethnic Ensemble this week with soft rain and a promise of snowfall by Wednesday. The ensemble responded with music, stories about Israel, plus rhythm, dance and language lessons at three school workshops. Throughout the week, the ensemble will offer seven more school workshops as well as additional presentations for seniors and families.

The ensemble’s first day in this Minnesota lake country town also included a radio interview (with Dennis Anhalt of KXRA) and an afternoon reception hosted by Bernice Wimmer of Alexandria Community Education, our local World Fest partner.
