Minnesota Orchestra


The Minnesota Orchestra performed its inaugural concert in 1903. Under the leadership of Music Director Osmo Vänskä, the 98-member Minnesota Orchestra now performs nearly 200 concerts each year, primarily at its home venue of Orchestra Hall in downtown Minneapolis, and its concerts are heard by live audiences of 400,000 annually. In addition to traditional concerts, the Minnesota Orchestra connects with more than 85,000 music lovers annually through Young People's Concerts and Target Free Family Concerts. With a long history of commissioning and performing new music, the Minnesota Orchestra continues to nourish a strong commitment to contemporary composers. The ensemble has premiered and commissioned nearly 300 compositions since 1903.
