Harlem String Quartet

This concert is currently SOLD OUT.

Now in its sixth season, Schubert Club Mix is an innovative series that takes the formality out of classical music. Audiences are treated to remarkable and intimate performances with relevant artists who are influencing the musical landscape of today.

The Harlem Quartet brings a program featuring its distinct mixture of classical and jazz influenced music. Formed in 2006 by the Sphinx Organization, the quartet now performs around the world including a current three-year residency at London’s Royal College of Music. The quartet has been praised for its “panache” by The New York Times and hailed in the Cincinnati Enquirer for “bringing a new attitude to classical music, one that is fresh, bracing and intelligent.” Schubert Club Mix audiences love to hear “new attitude!” By popular demand, we’ll be returning to Summit Beer Hall for this exciting performance. Come early for free brewery tours, food trucks, and, of course, beer.

About Summit Beer Hall

Founded in 1986, Summit beer offers great pride to the Twin Cities. Originally located on University Avenue, their beers quickly became local favorites, and the company began to grow rapidly. By 1998 the company’s beer production had exceeded the capacity of the original University Avenue brewery, and a new brewery, designed by architect Peter O’Brien, was built on the west end of St. Paul, overlooking the Mississippi River. Mix concerts will take place in the brewery’s Ratskeller (German for “council room”). All ages are welcome, but if you want a beer you will be carded, so don’t forget your government-issued picture ID.
