The St. Paul Chamber orchestra (SPCO) is bringing another season of extraordinary chamber music to the Capri Theater beginning with A Joyful Noise at 7 p.m. Thursday, November 10. Program your calendars now, and plan to be thrilled by three amazing concerts performed by SPCO’s world-class musicians.
Thursday, November 10, 7 p.m.: A Joyful Noise featuring Wynton Marsalis’ Quartet No. 1 from At the Octoroon Balls. Marsalis’ At the Octoroon Balls draws from Creole music the composer heard growing up in New Orleans.
Thursday, February 16, 7 p.m.: Mendelssohn’s Octet for Strings. The program will include selections from Carl Nielsen’s Wind Quintet and two youthful works of Felix Menddelssohn: String Quintet No. 1 in A Major and Octet in E-flat for Strings.
Thursday, March 16, 7 p.m.: Across the Channel featuring William Waltons’ String Quartet in A Minor, Claude Debussy’s Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp and Andre Caplet’s Conte fantastique for Harp and String Quartet.
