All Together Now!
Join the Minnesota Orchestra Community Celebration
Here’s a party you won’t want to miss! Orchestrate Excellence and SOSMN are jointly organizing a Community Celebration – All Together Now! Come before the concerts on September 26, 27 and 28 to celebrate the orchestra’s return and the opening of an exciting new season.
Community Celebration –All Together Now! Sept. 26-28
Starting at 6:00 on Friday, the 26th and Saturday, the 27th and at noon on Sunday, the 28th, you’ll be able to hear talented community musical groups performing in the Orchestra Hall lobby and on the mezzanine, take a tour of the hall, try for a prize in an orchestra trivia contest and post a message to the orchestra.
Become part of a giant Minnesota Orchestra Photo Mosaic
Be sure you are one of hundreds of orchestra fans included in a huge banner that will hang at Orchestra Hall. Come to the Atrium during the community celebration to see a mosaic that already includes photos of the musicians, Board members and staff. Get your photo taken so it can be included with them in Mosaic 2.0. We want to acknowledge your support of the orchestra in this graphic reminder that we truly are All Together Now!
Get your season opener concert tickets right away
There are great tickets left for the Sept. 26-28th concerts. You may have assumed that one of these concerts was included with your season subscription, but tickets need to be purchased separately. You can participate in the community activities without a ticket – everyone is welcome. But this is a program you won’t want to miss! Soloist Alisa Weilerstein plays the Barber cello concerto, followed by Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony, the work that Mahler described as “so tremendous that I don’t know myself, now that it is over, how I ever came to write it.”
Invite your friends and family to come to the opening concerts and the celebration — and help us get the word out. Click here for a poster you can download and distribute.
Lake Harriet Concert, Sunday, Sept. 14
We hope there’s a record crowd to welcome back the orchestra and kick off the season at the free concert at Lake Harriet next Sunday. You may have thought you’d seen the last of Minnesota Orchestra lawn signs, but sources tell us there’s a new one that will be offered free to the first 500 concert attendees who request them. Come and pick up yours, as well as buttons and posters for the Community Celebration to put up in your neighborhood.
We’re excited about all these upcoming concerts – hope to see you there!
