Magnificent Music on the Mississippi

Sat May 4, 2024

Symphony Ball 2024, River Rhapsody, is a celebration of the soul-nourishing, life-giving currents that flow through all of us - music and water - from the Northwoods to the Louisiana Bayou Country.

Join us on May 4, 2024 to support the Orchestra’s artistic and educational missions as we revel in the traditions - from music to food - that the River inspires. Then, experience an exquisite river-themed concert of glorious orchestral classics performed by the Minnesota Orchestra, conducted by new Music Director Thomas Søndergård. Cap off the night at our festive after-party at Orchestra Hall.
