What We're Excited About
"Music stirs something deep within us. It can spark memory, ease sorrow, light us with joy and energy. It has the quiet power to turn us within, and the abundance to link people together. You are vital to this experience—please join us for all the emotion our new season has to offer."
— Osmo Vänskä, Music Director
Dvořák Festival and Special Events
"I am looking forward to the Dvořák Festival when we’ll play everything from folk melodies to the grandeur of the Cello Concerto, the gold standard for cellists. Dvořák's music is truly for everyone and our music director Osmo Vänskä has a natural affinity for it. This music will warm your heart on a mid-winter night!"
— Beth Rapier, Assistant Principal Cello
Live at Orchestra Hall
"With such a wide variety of programs, I know we have exciting options for everyone. I love seeing people having a fantastic time at Orchestra Hall, and we hope you'll join us and share in the thrill of live music!"
— Sarah Hicks, Principal Conductor of Live at Orchestra Hall
"To me, nothing says the holidays like great brass music. One of my favorite holiday concerts to play is Charles Lazarus' Merry and Bright show. It's an all-brass big band with a kickin' rhythm section, great arrangements of holiday favorites and some terrific all-around brass playing. It's a ton of fun!"
— R. Douglas Wright, Principal Trombone
Relaxed Family Concerts
"As a kid who grew up listening to the Minnesota Orchestra, I'm a big proponent of taking your kids (or grandkids, nieces, nephews, et cetera) to see the orchestra. Take them out for ice cream and ask them to tell you a story about the music they heard. Their imaginations never disappoint."
— Sarah Grimes, First Violin
Get to Know Us
"We love to greet audiences at our concerts. It's an absolute pleasure to talk with you about the music that we feel so passionately about. Come say hello!"
— Gabriel Campos Zamora, Principal Clarinet
