We are excited to once again collaborate with our beloved colleague Dr. Kristina Boerger and her Augsburg University students for the kickoff year of the Augsburg Chamber Collective: A year long, shoulder to shoulder partnership including weekly rehearsals, coachings, and joint performances. Stay tuned for further details! 


We are preparing to engage a personal record number of students as Classical MPR Class Notes Artists. In total, as of now, we are scheduled for over 25 performances at nine schools in seven different cities for this Fall alone! We are thrilled for our ongoing partnership with MPR, and are especially grateful for the opportunity to bring our music to so many young people!


I am happy to share that we have increased our collaborations with area churches, providing sacred music for various services throughout the liturgical year. Our regular appearances include:

  • Compline services at St. John the Evangelist in Saint Paul
  • Solemn Vespers at both the Basilica of Saint Mary in Minneapolis and Good Shepherd Church in Golden Valley
  • Solemn Liturgies and Feasts at St. John the Baptist in Jordan
  • Lenten Prayer Services at Bethlehem Lutheran in Minneapolis

As always, please know of my sincerest gratitude for your ongoing support of the Mirandola Ensemble and its mission. I hope to see each of you soon!

Sincerely yours,

Nick Chalmers, Artistic Director
