In its sixth year, Accordo (recently named “Best Chamber Ensemble” by the Minneapolis Star Tribune) is composed of Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and Minnesota Orchestra principal string players Rebecca Albers, Ruggero Allifranchini, Steven Copes, Erin Keefe, Kyu-Young Kim, Maiya Papach and Anthony Ross; and former SPCO principal cellist Ronald Thomas.
Accordo is presented by The Schubert Club and Kate Nordstrum Projects at the National Historic Landmark Christ Church Lutheran, one of the Twin Cities’ great architectural treasures, designed by the esteemed architect Eliel Saarinen and his son Eero Saarinen. New for the 14-15 season, seating at Christ Church Lutheran will be pre-assigned.
In addition, Accordo at Amsterdam, a new Tuesday night series, dives deeper into the music in a hosted, casual, Q&A style format at Amsterdam Bar & Hall in downtown St. Paul.
