About the Mill City String Quartet

Heard on MPR and seen at the Baroque Room and the Schubert Club, among others, Mill City String Quartet seeks to create exciting and diverse concerts for listeners both familiar and new to chamber music. In addition to their season of public concerts, they frequently work with students across Minnesota and have premiered several new or lesser-known chamber music works.

The Lakewood Chapel — one of our city’s most beloved architectural treasures — is an intimate setting that seats about 160 people. Because of its incredible beauty and historical significance, it is a popular place for weddings,

end-of-life services, music concerts, tours and other celebrations of beauty, art and remembrance. See what others say about the Music in the Chapel concert series.

 

Dedicated in 1910, the Chapel was modeled after the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul by prominent Minneapolis architect Harry Wild Jones. Its 10-million piece mosaic interior, created by New York designer Charles Lamb, features a 40-foot high dome ringed with stained glass windows and 12 mosaic angels. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Chapel is one of the finest examples of Byzantine mosaic architecture in the country. Learn more about the Lakewood Chapel.
