Dessa with the Minnesota Orchestra

About This Concert:

After debuting last year with the Minnesota Orchestra to rave reviews and sold-out shows, acclaimed Minneapolis singer, rapper and writer Dessa rejoins the Minnesota Orchestra for two dazzling, genre-crossing performances.

Fun Facts:

  • Dessa's track "Congratulations," featured on The Hamilton Mixtape, notched over 5 million streams.
  • Her music video “Sound The Bells” was filmed among the sunken statues off Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula—she practiced staying underwater at the Minneapolis YWCA.
  • A Minneapolis native and University of Minnesota graduate, she’s a member of the Doomtree hip-hop collective.
  • She has her own Izzy’s Ice Cream flavor: Dessa’s Existential Crunch (whiskey, amaretto, brown sugar and praline.)
  • Dessa’s memoir in essays entitled My Own Devices: True Stories From the Road on Music, Science, and Senseless Love (Dutton Books) will be published on September 18, 2018
  • She made Billboard Top 200 list as a solo artist for “Congratulations,” Parts of Speech and as a Doomtree member for All Hands.
  • In support of her new album, Chime, Dessa will embark on a world tour (with sold out dates in NYC, London and Minneapolis).
  • As a writer, Dessa has contributed two essays to The New York Times Magazine.
  • This program is part of Minnesota Orchestra’s season-long exploration and celebration of American music.
