Location: Brackett Park

The Bakken Trio added a player to perform string quartets at Brackett Park. Props and audience participation, along with superb musicianship, held the interest of the mostly young audience. The green wig on the 2nd violin player is meant to resemble the hair of the contemporary composer whose work they are performing.

Athletes of the southside Minneapolis team of the Police Activities League practice in Brackett Park Friday night.  These 14-18 year-olds all come from the Little Earth community.  The 2016 season was their first time in the PAL organized league, and they finished 2nd in the city.  This year they doubled their roster from 13 players to 26.
