Inside the Classic: Bartók's Farewell + Campus Night

Inside the Classic: Bartók's Farewell + Campus Night

On March 3, the Minnesota Orchestra dove into Hungarian Composer Béla Bartók's deathbed masterpiece "Concerto for Orchestra", with host Sam Bergman and conductor Sarah Hicks. Our fantastic Student Ambassadors also brought nearly 400 students to Orchestra Hall and hosted many free student activities for our spring Campus Night event!
