Music For The Holidays

Thu Dec 22, 2022

Orchestra Hall

~ 90 min without intermission


It is with a heavy heart that the difficult decision has been made to cancel the Music For The Holidays event this year.

Our first priority is the safety of staff, artists and attendees with the current weather warning and potential life-threatening situations from the bitter cold and white-out conditions forecasted for the Twin Cities on Wednesday and Thursday. We wish you all a safe and happy holiday and look forward to seeing you next year!

We're back in person this year for the 8th annual FREE Music For The Holidays Concert! Get ready to get out of your seat and sing along to soul-stirring performances with local and national artists, musicians, choirs, and dance groups for a night of unity, fellowship and celebration of the holidays!
