Four New Things This Season

The 2023-24 season is right around the corner—and with it comes the same warm welcome, rich sounds and communal experience only the awe of live music can bring. Along with the things you love most about coming to the Minnesota Orchestra—the incredible musicians on stage, commanding guest artists and a celebration of music of all genres—you'll notice some fresh additions to your experience. Here are four new things you'll see this season:

1. A brand-new look and feel

We've made some updates! Our fresh new look brings the warmth, life and synergy of the Minnesota Orchestra community into our visuals. Though Orchestra Hall's cubes are no longer featured in our logo, they'll still be waiting for you in the auditorium.

2. A Choose Your Price option for select classical concerts

Music is for everyone, but we know price can sometimes be a barrier. Our new Choose Your Price option allows you to adjust your experience to your budget. For those whose budgets allow, you can also use the Choose Your Price option to show extra support for the Orchestra. However you use it, you're welcome at Orchestra Hall.

3. New Saturday concert times

Jamie Lee Curtis said it best: “Do a matinee!” We listened to her—but most importantly, to you—and we've added a few more options for concert start times. Most Saturday concerts will have an earlier 7 p.m. start time. For those who prefer a matinee, we're offering a series of concerts that begin at 2 p.m., all conducted by Music Director Thomas Søndergård; plus, Søndergård will partake in post-concert conversations as part of this series. Our Thursday 11 a.m. Coffee Concert series is alive and well and, for our night owls, Friday concerts will still begin at 8 p.m.

4. Your new music director 

Speaking of Søndergård, we've got a new musical leader this season. We're thrilled to welcome Thomas to the Minnesota Orchestra, and we can’t wait for you to get to know him too. Catch all of the concerts he's leading this season.

We can’t wait to see you!
