From Our Music Director

Happy New Year! With the new year we are all looking forward optimistically to better times. All of us at the orchestra cannot wait to be playing music again and sharing that music with our community. It has been a long, cold time and there is an aching desire to make music again with our friends. And we are making plans! Look forward to an announcement of a series of outdoor chamber concerts in the Milwaukee Avenue Historic District of South Minneapolis in May and June. There is an intimate little park there which works great for small ensembles. And in July we are planning on returning to the Lake Harriet Bandshell. That concert has always been a favorite and a lot of fun to play. We plan on opening our 2021-2022 concert season in late October with a program of the ever inspirational Beethoven Third Symphony and a new vibrant, exciting work by the renowned Mexican composer, Arturo Marquez. Stay tuned for details!
