New music echoes the vitality of downtown Saint Paul

Welcome to the 5th season of Landmark to Lowertown: weekday performances of new music held in the beautiful public spaces of downtown Saint Paul! Continuing the tradition, this season’s composer/performers are past awardees of the Minnesota Emerging Composer Award (MECA). Each of these artists recently received funding to pursue a musical project that stretched them in new directions. These performances enable you to experience that creative outcome and hear new work developed over the past year. All events in this series are free and open to the public.

This season’s performances will take place indoor & outdoors between March-June, 2019, and will feature winners of the 2016 MECA. Check back this winter for more details!
