Classical Notes

Harmony in the Park in Minneapolis as told through social media

The rain threatened, but thankfully fizzled. The nearby falls were roaring full tilt. And an enthusiastic crowd packed the benches and spread itself out on the adjacent green space as Vocal Point, The Singers and Six Appeal entertained on Thursday, June 5, the first of three installments of Harmony in the Park this month. The next Harmony in the Park concerts are in Mankato on Sunday, June 8, and in Duluth on Sunday, June 15.

A number of people in attendance shared their thoughts and photos via social media. Several of these communications have been collected here so you can relive the concert — or experience it vicariously.

Among those enjoying the concert last night were a number of dogs, which Julia Schrenkler, Ali Lozoff and Jen Van Zandt were spotting and photographing. You can look at a gallery of these canine classical lovers on Classical MPR's Facebook page.
