This new program of ACF is designed to contribute to St. Paul’s vibrant arts scene by linking composers and their music with the community in non-traditional settings.

In January, Nona and fellow band member Fletcher Barnhill will collaborate with yoga teacher Alyssa Hill to bring live music and yoga to the Landmark Center’s Cortile. In addition to connecting the two worlds of music and movement, it will also be an open invitation to the Winter Carnival fans and people of St. Paul to stretch themselves over their lunch hour.

Bring your yoga mat!
