Scandinavian Quartet to perform Wednesday in Benson
BENSON -- Touring the upper Midwest, the Scandinavian Quartet will stop to perform at 7 p.m. June 27 at Roosevelt Park in Benson.
The quartet was formed in 2010 when Matias Bjornstad, Linn Persson, Pen Nordell and Jesper Eriksson met at the Royal College of Music in Sweden. The four students, who each play a different form of the saxophone, formed the quartet and began playing concerts throughout Sweden.
This summer, the students, three from Sweden and one from Norway, will make their way through the upper Midwest to perform at various churches.
The group attended the Hjemkomst Festival in Fargo playing three concerts between June 22 and 24. Now, the group is making its way to Benson.
The public is encouraged to bring their lawn chairs and join them for a concert at Roosevelt Park. The free event is sponsored by Trinity Lutheran Church and will be held at the church if it rains.
