The mission of the Friends of the SPCO is to support The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra through educational, social and fundraising activities.
Our 2021-2022 season is going strong!
There’s plenty happening this year. In February scores of listeners enjoyed our Zoom event featuring a close-up conversation with Kyu-Young Kim and his prize-winning pianist son Orion; March brought our Saint Paul Chamber Music Competition, at which the excellent Alsephina Quartet won both First Prize and the Grand Prize—which will include the opportunity to offer a performance prior to an SPCO concert next season. Learn more and see photos of the winners on the “About Us” page of this site.
Next up on April 26 is a “Delightful, De-Lovely” Cole Porter program, a fundraising event, followed by the popular Conversation with Books on May 10. Throughout the year we also present inspired and insightful lectures by Dr. Daniel Freeman. While each of these is offered this year via Zoom, we’re looking forward very much to seeing each other—and all of you—in person again, hopefully soon.
We’re blessed with a Board and volunteers who are eager to carry out our mission. We hope you’ll join in this labor of love and treasure every minute of it!
