MPLS (imPulse) in Concert

October 13, 2019 @ 3:00 pm

$10 – $40

The season begins with a choral celebration of mid-century architecture presented at Christ Lutheran Church, a National Historic Landmark of Mid-Century Design by Finnish-American architect Eliel Saarinen. MPLS (imPulse) will perform Gian Carlo Menotti’s mid-century icon “The Unicorn, the Gorgon, and the Manticore”, which tells the ever-relevant story of a town odd-ball, his strange Medieval pets, and the harm a community can cause others through judgement and condemnation of “the Other”. The performance will also include selections from Samuel Barber’s “Reincarnations” and a premiere of “If It Is Honest” by MPLS (imPulse) Composer-in-Residence Ian A. Cook, written to celebrate Saarinen and his famed Christ Church Lutheran.

After the concert, join our collaborator, Preserve Minneapolis, for an architectural tour of the building.
