Fun Facts

  • On the Minnesota Orchestra’s first visit to Cuba—which took place in 1929, when the Orchestra was known as the Minneapolis Symphony—Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony was the centerpiece of the Orchestra’s concert. The Orchestra performed the same symphony during its historic tour to Cuba in May 2015, when it became the first American orchestra to visit the island nation following the thaw in U.S.-Cuban diplomatic relations.
  • The Washington Post praised Elena Urioste’s ability to play “...with equal parts passion, sensuality, brains and humor.”
  • As a toddler, Urioste became fascinated with the violin when she watched Itzhak Perlman playing his instrument for Elmo on Sesame Street.
  • Virtuosic and melodic, José White’s Violin Concerto is reminiscent of the Romantic concertos of Wieniawski.
  • White was twice a violin soloist for the New York Philharmonic and performed with several U.S. orchestras during his career.
  • Arrive early for concerts throughout the festival and enjoy our $5 Happy Hour along with food, fun and free entertainment.
