The Minnesota Orchestra is a lifeline of humanity and beauty for me. Tuning in allows me to feel connected again to the Orchestra, and to the incredible musicians who are giving so much to our community.”

Some tips for watching:

  • No matter how you tune in, Friday night live Classical concerts begin at 8:00 PM CT.
  • Text “NOTES” to 25827 during the live broadcast to read about the composers, musicians and repertoire on your mobile device.

This program series is made possible in part by generous lead gifts from Kathryn and Charles Cunningham & Nancy and John Lindahl.


The broadcasts will be available to audiences at no cost as they debut live and for up to a week after. Purchase a digital subscription and watch concerts on-demand anytime from anywhere. 2021-22 concert subscribers and generous donors at the Patron level or above receive a digital subscription as a benefit. All 2020-21 season livestream concerts and Young People’s Concerts will remain free for all audiences as both a live and on-demand experience. 

It depends on the performance. Each concert will typically be available for free for one week. You will need to log in with your This Is Minnesota Orchestra account or purchase a digital subscription to unlock all concerts and extras.

Anywhere you can play online videos—computer, smart TV, tablet or smartphone—you can watch Minnesota Orchestra performances. After the concert has aired live, it remains on the This Is Minnesota Orchestra website for up to one week afterward. 

You can read about the composers, musicians and repertoire in the program notes. Program notes are available in the program details under the video on our streaming website.

If you are watching during the live broadcast, you can text "NOTES" to 25827 to get program notes sent directly to your mobile device.

It is probably an issue with the speed of your internet. Try opening and closing the video again to see if it fixes the problem.
