Celebrating Swedish Classical and Folk Music

Music by the East Metro Symphony Orchestra (EMSO), featuring the Twin Cities Nyckelharpalag and the Twin Cities Swedish Folk Dancers.

The EMSO is a community orchestra based in the Twin Cities east metro, made up of volunteer avocational musicians led by music director and conductor, Dr. Elizabeth Prielozny Barnes. EMSO performs four to five concerts each season and strive to both educate and inspire our members and audience through thoughtful collaborations with local artists and organizations, unique programming, special educational partnerships, and programs for seniors.

The Twin Cities Nyckelharpalag (Key Fiddle Group) was formed in 1998 to practice and perform Swedish folk music. Their repertoire is drawn mostly from folk tunes in Uppland, Sweden, where the nyckelharpa tradition has its roots. Whether leading a procession, playing for dancing, performing in concert or providing focus for special events, the TC Nyckelharpalag enthusiastically carries on Swedish traditions through music. In performance members of the group wear folk-dräkt, folk costumes modeled after clothing worn on special occasions in the 19th century.
