Music On The Hill Concert Series

Posted: Updated:
MANKATO, Minn. -

Those in the mood for some soothing sounds were treated today in the Key City.

This afternoon was the third concert in the Mankato Symphony Orchestra's series called 'Music on the Hill.'

Today a quartet performed.  The music has grown in popularity, as the chapel was filled today with attendees.  The theme for this concert was 'Heavenly Lengths'.

Playing chamber music, the quartet consisted of violins, a viola, and a cello.  Despite just four instruments, their music filled the halls of the chapel.

"They're really into their music, and what's fun about professional musicians is they're not like pro football players.  Pro football players need practice etc. and so–forth.  These people have natural talents and can just step in and put out some beautiful music in no time," says Mankato Symphony Orchestra President Neil Nurre.

If you missed out on today's concert, there is still one more event left in the Music on the Hill series.  Titled 'Lonely Planet', it will be held on May 19th at 2:00 P.M. in the Good Counsel Chapel.
