American Swedish Institute says
ASI is bringing the Hagström guitar to Minneapolis and putting it in the hands of our best hometown music heroes in this intimate music series in the historic Turnblad Mansion Ballroom. The second Wednesday of each month (July-October), selected performers will pick-up the Hagström instrument of their choice to reference or play during their performance. Performances limited to 75 seats.

Sponsored by Eclipse Music.

The Musical Offering, Twin Cities' premier and longest continually-performing ensemble, partners with the American Swedish Institute to present a Scandinavian "Schubertiade" style concert. This chamber music format revives the intimate, social gatherings in a tradition which more closely mirrors how these works were intended to be enjoyed: accompanied by food, drinks, and conversation between artists and audience members. Funded by a $10,000 grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, each piece on this concert is a rarely-heard opportunity to explore the intersections of Scandinavian folk and European classical music.
