BRAINERD — Central Lakes College announced the postponement of its January and February performing arts events due to the impact of COVID-19 in the community.

Under guidance from MinnState, the governing body of Minnesota’s state colleges and universities, and the Minnesota Department of Health, the Central Lakes Community Performing Arts Center postponed the four upcoming events:

  • I Am … He Said, a Celebration of the Music of Neil Diamond, slated for Jan. 21.
  • "Amadeus," a Brainerd Community Theatre production, scheduled for Feb. 10-12 and 15-17.
  • Chris Koza, Twin Cities musician, scheduled for Feb. 18.
  • Monroe Crossing, bluegrass group, slated for Feb. 26.

“This is due to the impact of COVID on our community,” CLCPAC Director Patrick Spradlin said in a news release. “We are working to re-schedule these events in the not-too-distant future.
"Once we have done so, we’ll reach out to all current ticket holders for these events and give them updated information and options. We’ve suspended online sales for all these events," Spradlin said.

The center plans at this time to resume its spring season of performances with events beginning in March.

“We’re hoping the need for such cautionary measures will have subsided by then, but we will be monitoring the situation,” Spradlin said.
