Fridays in the Valley Founders
(Vicki and Sue)

“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.”  Victor Hugo

Valley Community Presbyterian Church has long enjoyed a rich musical heritage. Building on this tradition, Fridays in the Valley was created for local musicians to showcase their talents while providing a benefit for local charities.

Fridays in the Valley is an eclectic mix of quality musicians performing in an intimate setting, making fine music accessible to our community.

Funding for the Fridays in the Valley concert series is made possible by a gift from Greg and Mary Rom.

Previous musical groups performing in the Fridays in the Valley concert series include:

Dolce Wind Quartet

Dueling Quartet

Good News Big Band

Twin Cities Horn Club

Twin Cities Trumpet Ensemble

Victory Park Brass

Stone Arch Collective
