The Mill City String Quartet, based in the Twin Cities, began in 2007. Since then, they have traveled around the state and the country performing for all types of audiences. They frequently collaborate with Kantorei and work with students across Central and Southern Minnesota. They were chosen as Artist-in-Residence through Minnesota Public Radio's Class Notes program, and also have been able to tour and perform for rural communities in Southern Minnesota thanks to a grant from the Mankato Symphony and the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council.

What is the Family Series?
Each season, the Mankato Symphony Orchestra gives four shows designed to introduce young children to the delights of classical music. Each show is hosted by an actor in costume and the MSO String Quartet. They are a truly fun experience no matter your age, and it's a great way to get your children interested in music.
