The Twin Cities debut of the Danish String Quartet will open the 2014- 15 season of the Schubert Club’s Music in the Park Series on Sunday, Oct. 12. The New York Times described the group’s 2012 performance of Beethoven’s Opus 132 at the Scandinavia House in New York City as “one of the most powerful renditions” of the piece.
Each season, the Music in the Park Series presents six chamber music concerts at St. Anthony Park United Church of Christ, 2129 Commonwealth Ave.
All concerts are held on Sundays at 4 p.m. with a preconcert talk beginning at 3 p.m.
The other five concerts in the series include the Miami String Quartet with Lydia Artymiw on piano on Oct. 26, Ensemble Caprice on Nov. 23, Schubert Ensemble of London on Feb. 15, St. Lawrence String Quartet on April 19 and guitar duo Sergio and Odair Assad on May 10.
The concerts have capitalized on the intimacy of St. Anthony Park United Church of Christ (capacity 350) since artistic director Julie Himmelstrup founded the series in 1979. The concerts draw chamber music lovers (performers, composers and audience members alike) to the Sunday afternoon presentations.
Music in the Park Series six- concert subscriptions are $132. Discounts are available for students. Single tickets start at $25.
