Some tips for watching:
No matter how you tune in, live concerts begin at 8PM CST.
Text “NOTES” to 25827 during the live broadcast to read about the composers, musicians and repertoire on your mobile device.
The broadcasts will be available to audiences at no cost as they debut live and for up to a week after; subsequent on-demand access to This Is Minnesota Orchestra online is currently available as a benefit to 2021-22 concert subscribers and later this season will be available for purchase as part of a standalone digital membership. The November 3 Young People’s Concert will remain free for all audiences as both a live and on-demand experience.
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.
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 (available later this fall) to unlock all concerts and extras.
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.
