The Frederic Chopin Society is an international piano recital series serving the greater metropolitan area of St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota. Piano performance at the highest level is presented in the intimate setting of Mairs Concert Hall at Macalester College in St. Paul. Although programs often include works by Chopin, the Society enjoys a wide range of music from over three centuries.
For 2017-18, our 35th season, three well-known luminaries of the music world will grace our beautiful stage at Macalester, two of them making their fourth visits to the Chopin Society, and one making his long-awaited first appearance. Newer stars on the horizon will be represented by the enormously gifted Zlata Chochieva from Russia and the much talked-about Finnish pianist Juho Pohjonen. All are unique and passionate musicians.
Season tickets are available now. Single tickets go on sale August 15. Please visit the Tickets page for instructions on ordering season tickets or single tickets. Many of our concerts sell out so it's a good idea to order early.
We invite you to learn more about each artist here on our website and to join us at the concerts!
