- This concert will feature two of the Minnesota Orchestra’s very own—Steven Campbell (tuba) and Roma Duncan (piccolo)—as we explore music that tells a story of bumblebees, rivers, elephants and more!
- Listen to Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee, two pieces of music inspired by the Mississippi River—Kevin Puts’ River’s Rush and Michael Daugherty’s Reflections on the Mississippi—and a special surprise duet for tuba and piccolo.
- The Orchestra will then perform the first movement of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, but with a special, sporty twist thanks to the hilarious antics of composer P.D.Q Bach.
Join us at 12:45pm for Learning in the Lobby activities sponsored by Friends of the Minnesota Orchestra.
