The Civic Orchestra of Minneapolis will soon enter its 71st Season of music making with the 2023-2024 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 Valerie Coleman, as well as the world premiere of Gao Hong's Musical Journey 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!


Cary John Franklin
