New music sees the light of day in downtown St. Paul…

ACF is currently planning the 4th season of Landmark to Lowertown: weekday concerts of new music held in the beautiful public spaces of downtown Saint Paul. Continuing the tradition, next season’s composer/performers are past awardees of the Minnesota Emerging Composer Award (MECA), which recognizes up & coming artists in jazz/improvisation, electronic, and world music. All concerts in this series are free and open to the public. Take a break from your busy day, and soak in some new music by some of Minnesota’s most innovative composers!
