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.
About the Artists
Mill City String Quartet seeks to create exciting and diverse concerts for listeners both
familiar and new to chamber music. MCSQ has been chosen six times as Minnesota
Public Radio Class Notes artists, allowing them to reach thousands of school children.
Recent opportunities include being education artists-in-residence with The Schubert
Club and Oregon’s Britt Festival, premiering works by local composers, and recurring
concerts at MCF-Shakopee, our state’s all-women’s correctional facility.
The quartet is a frequent guest on regional chamber music series, including Schubert
Club Courtroom Concerts, Saint Paul Conservatory of Music’s Lunchtime Series, St.
Cloud Chamber Music Society, Westminster Presbyterian Performing Arts Series,
Waseca Arts Center Series, Merner Concert Series, Thursday Musical, Rochester
