Spring has ever been an invocation to renew our enjoyment of life’s pleasures! Love, dancing, drinking, nature – this program is a bacchanalian feast for the ears that will get your toes tapping away the last few days of winter. Using historical instruments and practices, Sospiri will present the music of Monteverdi (including the famous Zefiro torna duet), Frescobaldi, Josquin, de Literes, Arañes, and selections from the Cancionero de Palacio. Suggested donation of $15 at the door.


Well, winter is in full swing, and one-side only parking is in force in Saint Paul! You can park on the North and West sides (odd numbered) of the streets around St. Clements.

There’s a small amount of parking located in the St. Clement’s parking lot north of the building, accessible off Milton and behind the house next to the church (which is owned by the church.)

We’re also allowed to use the Mitchell-Hamline School of Law’s parking lot directly south of the church, accessible from Portland.
