A Press Release from the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra.  Note:  I don’t believe this is a Family Concert.  Small children are usually not welcome at orchestra concerts, but this is a late show anyways, probably best for grade school and up.  As of the time I sent this to print, there are still tickets available for tomorrow’s family concert!! The rest are sold out.  But sometimes rush tickets are available the day of — could be worth a try.

Join us at the Capri Theater in North Minneapolis as the SPCO’s Chamber Music Series opens with the music of Joseph Haydn, the father of the string quartet. Listeners will delight in new discoveries of rarely heard works for unusual combinations of instruments by Swiss timpanist Pierre Métral and Charles Whittenberg, an American composer and academic. Bohuslav Martinù, the early 20th Century master of neo-classical chamber music, is represented by his Madrigals, and Prokofiev’s folk-inspired Second Quartet brings the program to a fiery conclusion.

Tickets for the Chamber Music Series at the Capri Theater are FREE but reservations are required.
More at thespco.org.

Besides Family Fun Twin Cities, I spend my 9 to 5 at a day job pursuing my weird passion for calendars and organizing things as a legal secretary. When I get home I spend my time with my four kids, 10, 6, 4 and 1. My amazing husband is both a full-time musician and full-time stay-at-home dad. Together we run a small radio empire — SiaNet Radio — playing, promoting and enjoying the wide variety of local music and art in the Twin Cities. I juggle all this while writing about exploring the Twin Cities with kids. I couldn’t be happier.
