Campus Night - Inside the Classics: Bartók's Farewell

Campus Night

Our Student Ambassadors have chosen this concert to be a Campus Night. Students are invited to join us for a world-class Minnesota Orchestra performance and more!

Buy tickets early! For this concert, student tickets include FREE cookies, coffee & chai (compliments of our Hospitality Partners), and fun games like Bartók Bingo and Glitch's musical virtual reality game in the Student Zone pre-concert. Then, students are invited to after the concert to hang out with conductor Sarah Hicks and the musicians!

Tickets will be held at the Box Office and require one valid student ID per two tickets purchased.

About this Concert:

It isn't often that a composer is offered the chance to sum up his entire life's work in one massive, valedictory piece. But on his deathbed, Béla Bartók was given that chance, and his Concerto for Orchestra has become a beloved showpiece.

BARTÓK
Concerto for Orchestra

More Details:

  • Intrigued by classical music? First, let violist-host Sam Bergman and conductor Sarah Hicks be your guides in exploring the classics through witty conversation and orchestral excerpts. Then, after intermission, experience a full performance of the featured work.
  • Bartók had struggled with his health since he was a boy, but in his late 50s was diagnosed with leukemia.
  • Conductor Serge Koussevitzky visited Bartók in his hospital room and stunned him with a commission, asking the composer to get out of bed and write again.
  • The final page of Bartók’s Concerto holds the most riveting, life-affirming ending of any 20th-century classical piece.
  • That transcendent ending was an afterthought, and came only at the suggestion of a friend who saw the score in an early draft and thought the original, quieter ending could be pepped up a bit.
  • Performance includes pre-concert happy hour (50% off all beverages) including local craft brews, for patrons 21+.
