Young People's Concerts

Minnesota Orchestra Young People’s Concerts are for schools, homeschools and families looking for an outstanding arts experience that is both educational and engaging. Each Young People’s Concert focuses on a specific musical element, composer, time period or theme, that is supported by free online preparation materials and multi-disciplinary performance elements. All orders must have at least one child (ages 1 to 17) and one accompanying adult.

2014-15 Young People's Concerts

  • Minnesota Orchestra
  • The Okee Dokee Brothers
  • Roderick Cox, conductor

These world-premiere concerts feature newly-orchestrated versions of music from the GRAMMY Award-winning recording Can You Canoe? and latest release Through the Woods.

As childhood friends growing up in Denver, Colorado, Justin Lansing and Joe Mailander were always exploring the outdoors. Whether rafting down their neighborhood creek or discovering hiking trails through the Rocky Mountains, Justin and Joe were born adventurers. Now, as the GRAMMY Award-winning Okee Dokee Brothers, they have put this passion for the outdoors at the heart of their Americana folk music.
