Oct. 9: Minnesota Sinfonia begins a new season


A free and child-friendly concert is coming to Metro next month. At 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 9, the Sinfonia takes the stage at Founders Hall Auditorium, Saint Paul Campus with a Romance-Russian style concert featuring Dmitry Kousov on cello. This is the first concert of their 2015-2016 winter series, which will present five programs over the course of five months at various Twin Cities locations.

The Minnesota Sinfonia is a professional chamber orchestra that serves the musical and educational needs of the citizens of Minnesota, especially families with children, inner-city youth, seniors and those with limited financial means. The Sinfonia performs for more than 27,000 people each year, and is the only professional orchestra of its kind, offering all concerts free of admission charges, welcoming children to every performance and dedicating over half its services to inner-city schools. Founded in 1989 by Artistic Director Jay Fishman, the Sinfonia is an independent, nonprofit organization supported by corporate, foundation and individual contributors.
