Coffee Concerts

 

 

About the Series

In 2003, Coffee Concert Series creator Cléa Galhano recognized the need for a Conservatory performance series. Using her extensive Twin Cities musical network, Galhano crafted a dynamic noontime series that continues to offer high-caliber performances to downtown Saint Paul audiences.

Concerts are offered on the first Wednesday of each month from November through May.

All performances are at noon and FREE to the public. After the performance, join us for coffee, bagels, and an opportunity to meet and talk with the performers. Please note locations as they vary.

“We’ve been SPCM Coffee Concert enthusiasts for years. The programming every season has been exciting and delightful, introducing us to talented, unfamiliar artists and fresh, unexpected music. SPCM is a treasure in the community, and a godsend to brighten our long dark winters!”
–the Front Row Gang…Jack and Barb Maloney
