The mission of the Friends of the SPCO is to support The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra through educational, social and fundraising activities.
Welcome to the 2021-2022 season!
We co-presidents of the Friends of the SPCO are delighted that you are among the Orchestra’s and the Friends’ fans and supporters. And we want you to know that the Friends’ enthusiasm and productivity are more than a match for the challenges we’ve all faced recently!
There’s so much to look forward to this year. We now have several delightful events in the pipeline, including another Conversation with Books in the spring, and we hope to be announcing details soon. Here are a few more items of note:
- Our three sets of lectures presented by Daniel Freeman will be offered via Zoom this year, so you can attend even if you’re out of town on the road.
- Our newly renamed St. Paul Chamber Music Competition, which we are excited to present in partnership with the Saint Paul Conservatory of Music, is set for March 5, 2022.
- Circumstances permitting, we also will host an Orchestra Appreciation Luncheon at which our members can spend time with our wonderful SPCO musicians, and/or a Musician Evening featuring one or more of our star SPCO players.
We’re blessed with a Board and volunteers who are eager carry out this mission. We hope you’ll join in this labor of love and treasure every minute of it!
