The Civic Orchestra of Minneapolis celebrates its 70th Season of music making with the 2022-2023 Concert Season!


As the orchestra has done for seventy years, we will be playing the beloved  orchestral classics, neglected works and new music. The repertoire will range from Bach to Bernstein! There will be symphonies of Schubert, Brahms and Dvorak and neglected works of Haydn, Milhaud and Irving Fine. We will present works of living composers Adolphus Hailstork, Carol Barnett and the World Premiere of Gao Hong's Concerto for Pipa and Orchestra commissioned to celebrate the founding of the orchestra seventy years ago. The season will feature music for dance with Milhaud's The Creation of the World based on an African legend of creation and music by Bernstein and Prokofiev inspired by Romeo and Juliet.


Please join us for this exciting season!
