Hosted by composer Abbie Betinis, our popular Courtroom Concerts take place at noon most Thursdays in the Landmark Center in downtown Saint Paul. This series features accomplished musicians and composers from the Twin Cities and surrounding area, as well as occasional musical newcomers to the area. These one-hour concerts are free and open to the public.
Members of the Isles Ensemble:
Tom Rosenberg, cello; Laura Sewell, cello; Ivan Konev, piano
with guest Patrick O’Keefe, clarinet
About the Artists:
The Isles Ensemble has been enriching the musical landscape of the Twin Cities since 2004. Each member of the ensemble brings a wealth of artistry and experience to the stage, resulting in an outstanding group the Star Tribune called the “cream of the Twin Cities classical musicians.” The varied performing and teaching careers of the Isles Ensemble musicians include membership in the Minnesota Orchestra, the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, internationally touring string quartets (Lark, Chester, Manhattan) and college and university faculties.
Concerts are inspiring, fun and personal experiences for each audience member regardless of musical background. Repertoire is chosen from a wide range of styles and includes gems from the standard repertoire as well as little-known works that audiences will be pleased to experience, perhaps for the first time.
