Classical Notes

Summer Music

Gas prices or no gas prices, it seems we're still getting in our cars and driving to the lake, to the weekend getaway, etc., etc, etc. With that in mind (and with apologies to the high-profile Twin Cities events that I'm skipping over), here are just a few classical music events coming up in the next few months, either in Minnesota or within driving distance.

Duluth is offering Puccini's Madama Butterfly in July, and there's also opera in Des Moines (Mozart, Stravinsky, and Verdi). On the U.P., opera makes up part, but only part, of the Pine Mountain Music Festival. Surfing the Net, I also noticed the flashily named Bach Dynamite and Dancing Society in Madison and environs -- if you're a devotee of the Twin Cities' big-name orchestras, you'll notice some usual suspects among the musicians.
