The new musical group, Resonance, will perform from 5 to 5:30 and 6 to 6:30 p.m. at Bella Caffè. Seven voices (four female and three male) will blend in singing a collection of carols that span centuries of music.

"Let us highlight your holiday season as we bring the magic of these carols to life for you," says vocalist Gail Haller. In addition to Haller, members are Brinn Krabbenhoft, Julie Kaiser, Mary Maxwell, Bruce Bolton, Jason Wright and Brian Hobson.

The Northern Light Wind Quintet will play easy listening, chamber music from 5:30 to 6 and 6:30 to 7 p.m. at Necce's Ristorante.

The Northern Light Wind Quintet is a talented ensemble of Jennie Anderson, Deane Johnson, Noelle Kuitunen-Johnson, Darrel Rodekuhr and Mari Willie.

Singer and songwriter Craig Braunschweig will give his own interpretation on favorites of the holiday season from 5:30 to 6 and 6:30 to 7 p.m. at The Good Life Cafe.

The Park Rapids Lakes Area Arts Council sponsors this activity which is funded in whole or in part by a Region 2 Arts Council Grant through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund passed by Minnesota voters on Nov. 4, 2008.
