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 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.
