These are a few phrases and adjectives used by the press to describe the performers in Mankato’s new chamber music festival, ProMusica Minnesota. The festival, under the artistic direction of Bethel Balge and Peter McGuire, brings together ten performers in a series of four concerts from June 16 to June 21.
ProMusica Minnesota concerts will feature some of the most stirring and intimate chamber music, including works of Mozart, Brahms, Franck and Clara and Robert Schumann.
