"12 Strings and 153 Pipes" Cathedral, Chamber Music Concert on October 18

The Cathedral Music Series continues with a concert celebrating chamber music for strings and continuo on Sunday, October 18 at 7:30 p.m. "12 Strings and 153 Pipes" features the Bennett & Giuttari portative organ recently given by the Simonet family.

The rich timbres of stringed instruments and the warmth of the “kistenorgel” complement one another in the elegant music of Handel, Corelli, Bach and others. Come to the intimate setting of the Sacred Heart Chapel for this concert performed by violinist Michal Sobieski, member of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra; violinist Elizabeth Sobieski; cellist Arek Tesarczyk of the Minnesota Orchestra; and organist James Biery, Director of Music at the Cathedral of Saint Paul. Join us for an evening of musical delight. A freewill offering will be received.
