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.

Location: 46th St.

The Riverview Corridor is a transportation route that runs from Union Depot in St. Paul to the MSP airport and the Mall of America. One proposed option involves streetcars on 46th Ave. To judge from the banners along 46th Ave, this is not universally popular. More information can be found at http://www. riverviewcorridor.com.
