Thanks to generous funding from Minnesota Orchestra musicians, we are excited to welcome students 18 and under to classical concerts free of charge!
“By underwriting ‘Hall Pass - 18 & Under Attend Free!’, the musicians invite kids and their families to share in the joy of inspiring live performances of great orchestral music at Orchestra Hall. Investing in kids' concert-going experiences today is an ideal way for us as performers to say ‘thank you’ to our wonderful community.” — Acting Associate Principal Bass Kathryn Nettleman
