Community Conversations: Spirit & Spring
  • Lynne Warfel, host and moderator
  • The Right Reverend Mariann Budde, Bishop of Washington, National Cathedral, Washington, D.C.
  • Deacon Gregory Ealy, St. Mary’s Orthodox Cathedral
  • Dr. Gary Cohen, Professor of History, University of Minnesota
  • Imam Mohammed Dukuly, "Masjid Al Ansar" or Mosque of the Helpers

Join MPR host Lynne Warfel and a distinguished panel of faith community leaders for two pre-concert discussions as part of Minnesota Orchestra's Spirit and Spring events.

Topics will range from the role of nature worship in ancient cultures to solstice ceremonies and the ideas of rebirth, regeneration and resurrection—as reflected today in the practices of various faiths and in the music performed in this week’s program. The Orchestra’s approaching trip to Cuba also opens the door to discussions on liberation theology, forgiveness, grace and new beginnings.

Please note: this 30-minute Community Conversation is free; however, a concert ticket is required for entry. The Friday evening event will be held in the Target Atrium. Seating is limited and will be honored on a first-come, first-served basis.
