The Minnesota Orchestra announced today that furloughed federal government employees are eligible for two complimentary tickets to attend a Minnesota Orchestra concert of their choice. Concerts included in the offer are all Classical, Symphony in 60 and Inside the Classics concerts through June 2019 (subject to availability). Tickets must be reserved before Thursday, February 28, 2019, online at minnesotaorchestra.org or by phone at 612-371-5656, using the promo code FEDERAL.
