A cherished and distinctive audience favorite, the Julie Himmelstrup Music in the Park Series presents chamber music concerts at the acoustically and architecturally superb Saint Anthony Park United Church of Christ, “home” to the series since 1979. This smaller, more intimate setting fosters a close connection between audiences and the world-class musicians, composers, and artists on the series. Whether you’ve been attending for years or are brand new to the series, we invite you to experience chamber music and musicians up-close, during the pre-concert talks and live performances.

The Music in the Park Series reminds us that chamber music once was the favorite focus of an audience of friends – intimate, familiar, welcoming. Those qualities still exist in St. Anthony Park.

Modigliani Quartet

Saint Anthony Park United Church of Christ

The Modigliani Quartet returns to the Music in the Park Series with a program with a uniquely Italian focus, beginning with a quartet that young Mozart wrote while visiting Milan, and concluding with Giuseppe Verdi’s rarely heard string quartet, a masterpiece that is the only surviving work of chamber music by this opera great.

Le Consort

Saint Anthony Park United Church of Christ

Le Consort is a new and distinctive ensemble made up of four young musicians who share a passion for exploring the riches of the Baroque repertoire. Their performances, on period instruments of the day, are known for their originality, vitality, and enthusiasm in illuminating works for two violins and basso continuo -  the quintessential baroque ensemble.
