An Evening of Music with the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet
Submitted by Kathy Ness on Wed, 02/20/2013 - 4:08pm
Please join us Saturday, February 23 at 7pm for an evening of music by the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet, the second of our events honoring retiring Library Director Lynne Young. With passion, style, and musical sophistication borrowing from the best chamber music and string quartet traditions, the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet is one of the world's leading guitar ensembles.
Classical guitar music is profoundly soothing and when masters like The Minneapolis Guitar Quartet perform, it is like a balm for the soul. Their concerts balance a dizzying array of repertoire from Renaissance and Baroque; to Spanish, Latin American, and Romantic; to highly imaginative contemporary works. The program is brought to you by the Friends and Foundation of the Northfield Public Library and made possible in part by a grant provided by the Minnesota State Arts Board, through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature from the Minnesota arts and cultural heritage fund.
For more on the MGQ, please see their website (with videos and music samples).
Yummy treats--a hallmark of the Carnegie Concerts--will be served.
We hope that you can come!
