Celebrate Osmo Vänskä’s remarkable legacy and support concerts and initiatives during his final season as music director.
In honor of Music Director Osmo Vänskä’s final celebratory season as music director, philanthropist Louise Leatherdale has generously donated $1 million to bring to life Osmo’s vision in the year ahead. We are launching a season-long Osmo Tribute Campaign, seeking to match Louise's spirit of giving with an additional $1 million from the community to build a total of $2 million to honor Osmo's incredible legacy.

“Doug and I had great faith in Osmo,” says Louise Leatherdale. “It gave us great pleasure to support his vision for the organization.” That faith helped make possible some of the most memorable artistic projects of Osmo’s tenure.
A Partnership For The Ages
Osmo Vänskä and the Minnesota Orchestra
There was a spark from the start. Audiences, musicians and critics recognized it: Osmo Vänskä and the Minnesota Orchestra made magic together. As the Orchestra now enters Osmo’s farewell season, we look back on some indelible moments in this partnership for the ages, and we celebrate the conductor who found the heart and soul of the Minnesota Orchestra.
