SPCO concerts are canceled through May 10 in an effort to limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Happy Hour Concerts

Join the SPCO after work for a special Happy Hour performance at the Ordway Concert Hall! Gather with your friends or family and enjoy a complimentary pint of beer from Tin Whiskers Brewing or get $2 off any other drink from the Ordway bar, including  wine and cocktails.

Choose from several food options available from food trucks like Foxy Falafel, Bark and the Bite, Del Sur Empanadas, Hot Indian Foods and others that will be parked outside before and after the concert with appetizers and dinner available for purchase.

At 6pm bring your drinks into the hall for a one-hour concert. These special Happy Hour Concerts are casual events where newcomers can experience The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra in a relaxed environment and long-time patrons can experience the orchestra like never before.

Please come as you are and bring your family or friends along to hear one of the best chamber orchestras in the world!

Bring the kids along!
Happy Hour concerts are one hour long and end at 7:00pm, so you can have the kids home by bedtime. Plus, tickets for children are FREE!

“It was an experience that opened my eyes to the SPCO. I had always wanted to attend a concert but held back because of cost and uncertainty of what to expect. It was one of the most enriching experiences I’ve had… I enjoyed it so much… I discovered the club2030. I’m addicted! Thank you for that initial happy hour concert, it was the perfect sample to develop a lifelong taste for this beautiful music!” – Rochelle S.

“Designed to appeal to a new generation of concertgoers, initiatives such as the happy hour concert are catching the eye of national observers.” – Star Tribune
