FREE Tuesday Coffee Concert: The Minnesota Horn Quartet
Name: FREE Tuesday Coffee Concert: The Minnesota Horn Quartet
Date: December 17, 2019
Time: 10:30 AM - 11:45 AM CST
Emerging as one of the Midwest’s premiere brass ensembles, the Minnesota Horn Quartet (MNHQ) was founded in 2017 by Allyson Partin, William Eisenberg, Matthew Renz, and N. Jennings White. The members are freelancers, having played with nearly every professional music ensemble in Minnesota, including the Minnesota Orchestra, Minnesota Opera, Duluth Superior Symphony, Rochester Symphony, Mankato Symphony, The Guthrie Theater and The Chanhassen Dinner Theater; and have nearly 80 years of playing experience between them. The ensemble prides itself on its flexibility of performance, being as comfortable in recitals and outreach settings, as they are at events, weddings, or the occasional beer hall. While MNHQ plays the classics, both major works and transcriptions, they also explore jazz and popular music as part of their mission to expand the repertoire of horn quartet music, as well as showcase the versatility of their ensemble.
