From whispering pianissimos to heart-thumping fortissimos, there is nothing like the all-encompassing experience of a live Minnesota Orchestra performance and the soul-stirring emotions it evokes.

Music Director Osmo Vänskä and Minnesota Orchestra musicians invite you to the 2019-20 season, a year in which we traverse every imaginable musical landscape—from the aching beauty of Vaughan Williams and the thrill of Rachmaninoff to the mystery of Kaija Saariaho and the awe of Mahler. Join us to experience the spine-tingling power of music—in all its expressive magnificence— performed for you, shared together.
