Sinfonia concerts in the parks

Minnesota Sinfonia will be bringing free, classical music to Lake Harriet Bandshell and Como Park Pavilion this summer. Both sites do have benches, but feel free to bring your own seat cushion, lawn chairs, blankets, picnics, kids, toys, and dogs. Food is also available for purchase at each location.
