Jim Brandenburg and Michael Monroe will be performing together on Saturday, January 22nd at The Reif Center in Grand Rapids, Mn. This unique performance by world-renowned photographer, Jim Brandenburg and performing artist, Michael Monroe, is a rare experience for eye and ear. Brandenburg and Monroe share their understanding of Minnesota’s north woods and wilderness as our "backyard." Together they explore the subtle, quiet places that spark the imagination and touch the heart. Brandenburg’s breathtaking images and the rich tones of Monroe’s vocals, guitars and bamboo flutes create a poetic blend. Find yourself moved by the music, enthralled by the stories behind some of the most famous nature photographs of all time, and mesmerized by the creative collaboration of two of our region’s most inspired artists.
Monroe created the beautiful instrumental soundtrack for the award winning documentary "Chased by the Light, A Photographic Journey with Jim Brandenburg." The two have been friends for decades and enjoy the opportunity to reconnect professionally once again.
We hope you join us for this rare opportunity! Their sold out 2003 Guthrie Theater show received a standing ovation.
Get tickets HERE. There will be an artist signing following the show.
