Sir James MacMillan with the Minnesota Orchestra

Fri Mar 28 — Sat Mar 29, 2025

Orchestra Hall

~2 hours, including intermission

Composer-conductor James MacMillan’s religious faith is at the core of his music. In his Minnesota Orchestra conducting debut, you’ll hear two powerful examples. He’ll also conduct one of the most popular hits by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, who, despite not being religious, wrote the Russian Easter Overture that concludes with what he called “the unbridled pagan religious merry-making of Easter Sunday.”
