Young Minnesota Musicians Join the Sinfonia

The Minnesota Sinfonia will welcome a group of talented young musicians to to rehearse, and perform, Beethoven’s 7th Symphony.  This is a unique opportunity for young musicians to experience the rehearsal process of a professional chamber orchestra, and lean new skills from the Sinfonia musicians.  The week will be highlighted by the Youth Outreach Concert on Friday, July 24th.

This year’s youth outreach concert will also feature the work of two outstanding young musicians. Katia Tesarczyk, the junior division winner of the Sinfonia’s Young Artist Competition, will perform the Bruch Violin Concerto in g minor. The Sinfonia will also perform Reverie by John Paul Proper, the winning composition of this years Young Composers Competition.  More about the Youth Outreach Concert

Thanks for a great weekend!!!

june 2015

The Minnesota Sinfonia began it’s summer season last weekend with two concerts and an event at Summit Brewery.  The two concerts featured Tony Hauser performing a classical guitar piece and new flamenco composition that he wrote.  The Minnesota Sinfonia String Quartet could also be found performing some lighter music, such as La Bamba, at Summit Brewery on Saturday evening.

Even with the threat of rain on Friday, the crowds were fantastic for both concerts.  Thank you to everyone who joined us this weekend.  We can’t wait to see you in July for some music on the lighter side and the Youth Outreach Concert.
