It begins, again!

The SPCO onstage at the Ordway's new Concert HallNass, Daniel

September 07, 2021

A fall season of live, in-person classical concerts has begun. Leave your screen at home, but bring your proof of vaccination (or negative test).

Prepare to be immersed in Rossini, Bach and Tchaikovsky at the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra. Followed by a deep dive into Chopin from Minnesota pianist Evren Ozel, on his way to Warsaw for the International Chopin Competition. View the stage at Artistry in Bloomington, featuring a Broadway song cycle by Jason Robert Brown (The Last Five Years, Bridges of Madison County). Songs for a New World is all about life’s beginnings and endings.

Welcome back to some of life’s beginnings.
