The mission of the Friends of the SPCO is to support The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra through educational, social and fundraising activities.
Greetings from the Co-Presidents!
It feels so good for the Friends to be back in the swing of in-person activities this year. We’ve been enjoying wonderful events in support of the SPCO – a wine-tasting-plus-opera-aria party in October, engaging fall and winter lecture series with Dr. Daniel Freeman, and in February, a Bluegrass and Brews shindig at Summit Brewery plus the annual Saint Paul Chamber Music Competition. Wow!
Spring brings another very busy stretch. First up are lectures on Ravel and our always- popular Conversation with Books event in April, followed by an appreciation luncheon for our stellar Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra musicians and staff, and a delightful evening featuring SPCO cellist Josh Koestenbaum at a lovely Summit Avenue mansion in May. So many ways to show our dedication to the SPCO, even before we celebrate the season with our Annual Meeting early in June.
We’d love to see you at these events and to have you as a Friend of the SPCO! It takes just minutes to join, whether online or via a note in the mail. Let us hear from you, and let’s support our wonderful SPCO together!
