Free Outdoor Concert

CANCELED: Lake Harriet Symphony for the Cities

Mon Jul 8, 2024

Lake Harriet Bandshell

We are sorry to share that the Minnesota Orchestra concert at Lake Harriet on Monday, July 8, is canceled in light of the current strike involving Minneapolis Park employees and the Park Board. We extend our sincere apologies to concertgoers; please consider visiting us at one of our other free Symphony for the Cities concerts this week in Plymouth, Hudson or Winona or at our many free Day of Music activities on Saturday, July 27 at Orchestra Hall.

Led by Norman Huynh, the Minnesota Orchestra offers a week of free outdoor performances—featuring classical favorites, film music, Sousa marches and more—as an annual thank-you to the community.
