The Noon Hour Concert will feature Adedayo Lawal Emmanuel from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m. Thursday, July 28 at Calvary Lutheran Church

Adedayo is currently studying trumpet performance at Bemidji State University under the tutelage of Prof. Scott Guidry. His aim is to be a professional soloist, chamber musician, orchestra player and music educator.

“It’s not the amount of time you spend playing your instrument that matters,” trumpet virtuoso Chris Coletti says, “but it’s the amount of time spent cultivating what you want to sound like in the first place.”

Adedayo has been a member of the Divine Symphony Orchestra (Nigeria) and the Chamber Music Society of Nigeria. He played in the Heartland Symphony Orchestra and was featured in an opera production of “Amahl and the Night Visitors” in the U.S.

There is no admission for the concert. A free will offering will be taken for the performer.


The Bemidji String Quartet concludes its Northern Minnesota tour Sept. 10, performing works by Mozart and Grieg.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
