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 intimate setting fosters a palpable connection among composers, musicians and audiences that simply cannot be recreated in larger halls. 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, live performances and post-concert gatherings.
