Concert II: A Casual Concert

Concert II: A Casual Concert

Arlington, MN
Sometimes concerts can be stuffy and filled with too many “rules of conduct.” Clap here. Don’t clap here. Wear something nice. Stand there. Don’t stand there! Only cough here. We decided we want to loosen concert “etiquette.” Hosted at Arlington Haus Too, this concert will feature music used for li…

Music from New Spain

Music from New Spain

New Ulm, MN
The choir at the Cathedral in Puebla, México was one of the best in North America in the 1600s. The Cathedral itself is a beautiful testament to Bishop Palafax y Mendoza’s vision of completion and restoration. After the bishop’s arrival in 1640, the much-delayed building project resumed. The cathed…

The Early Symphony

The Early Symphony

Arlington, MN

Operas, ballets, horse ballets (yes, seriously!), cards, and banquets were but a few entertainment options. Much of the Baroque music we think of as high art was used as backg…
