The Italian Cultural Center of Minneapolis / St. Paul is pleased to welcome renowned Florentine pianist, organist, and harpsichordist Giacomo Benedetti to the beautiful St. Olaf Catholic Church in downtown Minneapolis. This concert aims to highlight the organ as a musical instrument through a repertoire that runs from Germany, France, and Italy at the beginning of the 17th and 18th centuries to conclude with an Italian overture from the 1800s (click here to register and for more information).

This one-time-only concert will take place March 3rd from 7:00 pm until 8:00 pm (reception from 6:30 to 7:00 pm). There will be a fifteen-minute Q&A to follow. This will be a free event open to everyone with suggested donations of $10 for ICC Members and $15 for non-members.

We appreciate the help in arranging this event provided by Michael Barone. He illuminates the rich experience of pipe organs and their music through his weekly broadcasts of American Public Media’s PIPEDREAMS, aired locally Sunday mornings from 6:00 to 8:06 a.m. on the network stations of Classical Minnesota Public Radio (KSJN-99.5FM in the Twin Cities). The program also can be enjoyed online at any time anywhere, 24/7 globally, at www.pipedreams.org.
