The mission of The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra is to sustain a world-class chamber orchestra at the highest standards of artistic excellence that enriches the Twin Cities community by sharing dynamic, distinctive and engaging performances. We are actively committed to accessibility and intentional inclusivity in all aspects of our work and continually strive to provide all people in our community with opportunities to connect with the music we perform.
The SPCO has long been dedicated to delivering transformational musical experiences to as many people in our community as possible. Even though we cannot gather in person, we still delivering on this mission through our free digital Concert Library. With more than 400,000 visits since March 2020, we have seen record-breaking use of the Concert Library and have heard from many in the community that access to these recordings is meaningful during this challenging time:
“Thank you so much for streaming these live performances. I support your goal of making the music available to all regardless of financial means.”
“Fabulous program, sensational performances, and an uplifting gift during such times.”
“We have enjoyed the variety of formats available for online viewing. Creative virtual experiences will get us through these tough times.”
—Concert Library audience members
In addition to our Concert Library audience, the SPCO is proud to serve more than 150,000 people each year through concerts at 13 regular venues in neighborhoods across the Twin Cities. The SPCO also offers the most affordable ticket prices of any professional orchestra in the United States, including free tickets for children and students.
All of this is only possible because of audience support. In fact, contributions from individuals are our largest and most sustainable source of revenue.
Combined with the support of thousands of community members like you, your donation makes an incredible impact and is especially important during this time. We hope you'll consider making a gift of any size to the SPCO's Annual Fund today. In special recognition of #SpringForwardMN, May 1 – 11, new gifts of any size will be matched!
