Comments from some of our participants
"My sister and I love playing in the Lex-Ham Band! Growing up, we were too far apart in age to be in band together. It’s so fun getting to play music with the Lex-Ham community and with each other".
"I love playing with the Lex-Ham Community Band! Even during the constraints of this past year, we stayed connected by playing some virtual pieces together and a few safe outdoor events this summer and fall. I very much look forward to creating good music and camaraderie again in person when we are able to do so!"
Directing at Lex-Ham is always a great adventure. I find myself stimulated with the research and interpretation of texts with which I had no previous knowledge, although I hold an academic background in dramatic literature! Through Lex-Ham I have delved into: an intriguing O' Neill with a surprising feminist bent; a play penned by our own F. Scott Fitzgerald for his St. Paul teenage theatre company; a comedy by my favorite George S. Kaufman with co-author Katharine Dayton’s treatise on 1930’s women involved in U.S. politics and power! Most recently, I worked with Twin Cities’ distinguished talent in a staged reading of a controversially feminist George Bernard Shaw drama. In all of these productions Lex-Ham attracted excellent actors and technicians with whom I still gratefully collaborate. The intellectual stimulation and the entertaining interpersonal experiences available attract me to work with Lex-Ham.
"I've been playing bass clarinet in the Lex-Ham band since I retired in 2011. I really enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. I can't remember a time when I didn't have fun at rehearsal or a performance."
