St. Paul Chamber Orchestra heads to North Minneapolis—and offers tickets for free


While the Minnesota Orchestra sweats out the mid-September deadline to resolve contract negotiations before music director Osmo Vänskä quits, the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra (SPCO)—an equally world-class band—are moving forward with a full season of programming, including three performances of chamber music at the historic Capri Theater in North Minneapolis.

Music by composers including Beethoven, Haydn, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Britten, and Bartók will be heard on the Capri stage during three performances on October 10, February 6, and May 8. A season ticket for all three performances is only $30, and a third of available seats for each performance will be given away completely free. Tickets are on sale now, and reservations for free tickets will be taken at 651-291-1144 starting one month before each performance. To buy tickets and see complete programs, visit the SPCO’s website.
