Your Orchestra, Your Impact

A Season Like No Other

In mid-September 2019, the Minnesota Orchestra launched its 117th concert season—in an Orchestra Hall auditorium filled with 2,000 listeners, and a full complement of musicians onstage. Halfway through the season, the Hall went dark as the COVID-19 pandemic reached Minnesota, the world changed, and the Orchestra adapted to new ways of making and sharing music. From musicians’ at-home videos to virtual collaborations with local and international performers to safely distanced chamber concerts in Peavey Plaza, the ensemble’s connections with audiences and followers around the world strengthened in profound and creative ways. Read details in our year-end news release.
