The Minnesota Orchestra's innovative community engagement program, Common Chords, features weeklong residencies in Minnesota cities. The program has included residencies in Detroit Lakes, Grand Rapids, Willmar, Hibbing and Bemidji.
Common Chords background & sponsors
The Minnesota Orchestra gratefully acknowledges the support of
The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
for its investment in the Common Chords program since its inception in 2011.
Common Chords is also supported by important funding from Mardag Foundation, the McKnight Foundation, the Minnesota State Arts Board Arts Tour program and the National Endowment for the Arts.
This activity is made possible in part by a grant provided by the Minnesota State Arts Board through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature from the State's arts and cultural heritage fund with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
