Commonweal Theatre presents the Artaria String Quartet

Posted in Lanesboro All

LANESBORO, MN — The Commonweal Theatre Company welcomes the renowned Artaria String Quartet for a two-night concert series in the Events Hall of the Commonweal Theatre in historic, downtown Lanesboro. Concert dates are Wednesday, June 13 at 7:30 pm and Wednesday, June 20 at 7:30 pm. Reservations can be made by calling the Commonweal Box Office at (800) 657-7025.

Named after the Italian family that published the premiere issues of many of the Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven quartets, Artaria’s refined and thoughtful playing has brought them critical acclaim in Europe and throughout the United States. The Boston Globe has described Artaria as “exquisitely balanced and sonorous” saying that “their musical understanding was first-rate.” Based in St Paul, MN, the quartet has been featured on a Peter Jennings World News Tonight broadcast and has given numerous live performances on WGBH Boston and Minnesota Public Radio stations, and in 2004, was awarded the McKnight Fellowship for Performing Musicians. Members of the quartet also maintain active careers in performing and teaching on the faculties of St. Olaf and Carleton Colleges.

Tickets for the performances are on sale at Commonweal Theatre’s Box Office by calling (800) 657-7025 or stopping by the theatre at 208 Parkway Ave N, Lanesboro, MN. Admission prices for the concert are $20 for adults and $15 for students (grade school through graduate school). The $15 ticket price is also offered to Commonweal Season Pass holders and members of Commonweal’s Million Dollar Club.

The Commonweal is a non-profit professional theatre with year-round main stage and educational programming located in historic downtown Lanesboro. Funding for programs provided in part by a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature, a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, and private funders.
