Esteemed friends and fans of classical music in obscure spaces:
Sick of long summer nights, endless B.B.Q.´s, mosquito bites and all the outdoor sports you can handle? Fall comes, and St. Paul has its secret little classical concert series back. About time, we think. How else are your going tospend your first Fridays of the month?
Mark your calendars for those upcoming dates, and tell your friends about us. Not too loudly, since we ran out of chairs back in May, remember?
The OPENING CONCERT is held at our home base, the Lowertown Lofts Artist Cooperative and features some amazing local performers.
PAVIA WIND QUINTET - one of the Midwest's most exciting young chamber music ensembles, they will perform works by Nagle, Nielsen and selections of Richard Wagner's Siegfried Idyll. Check them out at http://paviawinds.com/
OLSON/BATES DUO - guitar and bass, extraordinary jazz skills, provided by Twin cities greats Chris Olson (guitar) and Chris Bates (bass), who we´d like to congratulate warmly for recently being awarded a McKnight fellowship!
HILDEBRAND- PETERSON DUO - these two young musicians come to us from the UofM across the river. Flute and guitar - a fine combination featuring works by Giuliani, Beaser and Ibert. With Jay Hildebrand, classical guitar and Hannah Peterson on flute.
Enjoy the special atmosphere, great company and musical excellence that has made this series a go-to for music lovers in the Twin-Cities!
With complementary wine tasting by our generous friends from Lowertown Revival Wine, Beer and Spirits.

Have you heard of MetroSketchers? As of today there are 465 members in the Minneapolis/St.Paul Metro area. What do MetroSketchers do? Keep scrolling to find out more!
MetroSketchers is an open, inclusive group that was founded by Liz Carlson and administered by Liz and Tim Jennen. It has the simple mission to get out in the world and draw. We meet once a month, usually the first Sunday of the month from 12-3pm at locations that are of interest to the sketcher. If you are a person who has always wanted to draw, but has never picked up a pencil, this is a group for you. If you are a person who used to draw and wants to get back into it, this is a group for you. If you are a professional artist looking for new opportunities to draw, it's the group for you as well.
There are no fees to belong. We try to keep the group as free as possible. Most of our locations are chosen with the idea that costs are kept to around $10 or less, depending upon the location and parking. We do encourage members to make donations to organizations and galleries we visit, who have been very generous in allowing us to draw at their location.
The level of participation is entirely up to the individual. No one is required to share their work with other sketchers or even to announce that they are at the event. The important thing is to get out and draw. Those interested in sharing their work can meet up with others at the end of each sketch gathering at a designated location.
We'd love for you to join us! Get all the details and see many of the sketches here on our MetroSketchers Facebook page!
