The Arts Partnership to host four free concert screenings in Rice Park

The Arts Partnership will present four free concert screenings this summer on a giant video wall in downtown St. Paul’s Rice Park.

The organization — a partnership between Minnesota Opera, the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, Schubert Club and the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts — first tested an outdoor show in 2022 and staged a four-show season dubbed Ordway Inside Out last year.

“We are excited to bring Ordway Inside Out back to our Twin Cities community and build upon the success of our pilot season,” said Chris Harrington, secretary of the Arts Partnership and president and CEO of the Ordway. “Our goals when we launched this series were to increase access to the arts, bring people together in our beautiful parks and to play our role in contributing to the vitality and vibrancy of downtown St. Paul.”

In case of rain, the concerts will be screened the following night at 7 p.m.

The schedule includes:

  • Schubert Club presents Víkingur Olafsson plays Bach and Glass; 7 p.m. June 22.

  • The St. Paul Chamber Orchestra performs Schubert’s the Great C Major Symphony with Richard Egarr; 7 p.m. July 13.

  • Minnesota Opera performs Benjamin Britten and Eric Crozier’s “Albert Herring”; 7 p.m. Aug. 3.

  • The Ordway presents Sphinx Virtuosi’s “Generations”; 7 p.m. Aug. 17.
