Discover Great Music on Minnesota’s historic Iron Range.
The Northern Lights Music Festival mourns the passing of Sen. David Tomassoni, a great supporter of the the festival, and of all things that would improve the quality of life on the Iron Range.
Senator Tomassoni was a cultivated and cultured person, loving languages (especially Italian), international travel, classical music and opera–again, especially Italian opera! His support for the Legacy Amendment and for the Northern Lights Music Festival was unstinting and one of his last public appearances was at the festival’s recent production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute produced on the stage of his own alma mater, Chisholm High School. He worked his own magic for his constituents for decades, always with his great good humor and energy.
He was a monumental figure on the Iron Range and in the State of Minnesota and will be sorely missed.
