Efforts are currently underway at the Minnesota Orchestral Association to fold these concerts and artists into the offerings for a series of concerts that will be announced soon. We apologize that we cannot offer further details at this time. The only concert not affected at all is the Echoes of History concert with Osmo Vänskä at Northrop on May 2nd and 4th. Tickets for those concerts are still on sale and are available at U of M ticketing.

Come be a part of history as Osmo Vänskä leads the Musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra and celebrated piano soloist William Wolfram at the opening of the newly remodeled Northrop at the University of Minnesota! These programs will re-create the first concerts ever heard in this Twin Cities musical and educational landmark; the original program played by the then-Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra on October 22, 1929. Beautifully re-configured Northrop will be filled with the sounds of Wagner, Dvořák, and Liszt, as the University of Minnesota’s own Marching Band and Chorus join forces with the Musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra for a most triumphant finale – Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. We hope you will join us for this unforgettable celebration of Minnesota history and culture!
