If you're more of a casual fan of music, I'd recommend one of their Inside the Classics concerts where they break down sections and give you some contextual background. It really enhances your enjoyment and experience! If you're a classical music lover and visiting the Twin Cities (or the group has traveled near your town) catching an Orchestra performance is...

Great performance from the MN Orchestra. The music was outstanding and the acting for the young children was funny. I thought it was a great way to expose young children to the orchestra. I attended with 3rd graders.

Each and every time I visit the Minnesota Orchestra I tell myself I need to come here more. We just went to see Ben Folds with the Minnesota Orchestra and it was unbelievable. The acoustics in this place are so incredible that once during the performance Ben asked the audience to sing and it nearly got a standing ovation from... More

My boyfriend and I saw the Rogers and Hammerstein show in April. The orchestra was fantastic. The space is gorgeous. Sarah Hicks is not just a conductor, but she's a commander. I can't wait to go back.

It's our new family tradition and look... More

I attend with family or a date multiple times a year yet I am not a season ticket holder. I seem to attend mostly special events/performances. Recently was Home Alone w/MN Boys Choir & the orchestra, last was Vocal Essence/Sounds of Blackness and others were Looney Tunes, a small play & ballet accompanying the orchestra and other varying instrument soloists....

My daughter's choir was asked to perform at Orchestra Hall. They have an excellent performance space off of the main lobby. During the holiday season, they offer it to High school choirs. This a nice little treat for the patrons who are attending a concert in the main hall.
