The Bethlehem Music Series is the longest running series of its kind in the Twin Cities area. This year marks our 34th anniversary and promises to be another stellar season of excellent music and artistry.
Raise your voice in song and hear renowned organ improvisator Aaron David Miller at the “Let All the Earth Rejoice” Hymn Festival, revel in the rhythms of the internationally noted Tantalus Guitar Quartet, celebrate classical music with piano virtuoso Rebecca Davis, enjoy the delightfully different and acclaimed Sotto Voce Tuba Quartet and experience a pulse-pounding rendition of Jewish music from the heartland with Klezmerica.
Our eclectic concerts are enjoyed by everyone and offer you an opportunity to experience all types of music in a unique setting with great acoustics — and free admission!
