The Bloomington Symphony is supported in large part by donations from our audience members and playing members. One of the fundraisers we do is a benefit recital presented by our concertmaster, in a private home. This year Michael Sutton will be joined by pianist Sonja Thompson in a program featuring great violin works by Mozart, Ysaye & Franck. BSO Principal clarinetist Karen Hansen will host the recital in her St. Paul home on Sunday, March 20 at 2 p.m.

The tickets for the benefit recital are $100 and include the performance by Michael and Sonja, along with drinks and light appetizers. $75 of each ticket is tax-deductible to the extent of the law.

Seating is limited and we urge you to purchase tickets as early as possible to ensure availability.

For more information, or to purchase tickets, email recital@bloomingtonsymphony.org or call Brianna at 612-360-7762.

The recital is supported by the contributions of Michael Sutton, Karen Hansen, the BSO Board of Directors and piano tuner John McKone, all of whom are providing products and services to make the recital a success.

A season-ending thank you!

Thank you to all who attended the final concert of our 2013-14 season. We had a wonderful time transporting you to the afterlife, performing a little-known piece about a dying swan and surrounding you with the sounds of the Pines of Rome. We hope you will join us for one – or all – of the concerts in our 2014-15 season, which we will be announcing soon.

One of the ways that you can support the Bloomington Symphony, besides attending concerts, is to join us as a donor. More information about how to donate is available on our Support page.

Please be sure to check back here in the coming months to hear the announcement of our new concertmaster, and to learn more about our upcoming season. You can also join our e-mail list by completing the form at the bottom of the page and “like” our Facebook page.
