There isn't one thing that I can possible say that would make you not want to go visit the Minnesota Orchestra. Everything from the hall, to the seating, to the friendly professional staff, to the music is all top of the line, always. We're huge fans of all music and enjoy a night out at the orchestra any time. If... More

After a bitter year and a half lockout, the management was expelled and one of the county's oldest symphony orchestras was brought back by the community with its fantastic conductor Osmo Vanska. Management remodelled the hall for $50 million and locked out the orchestra to pay for it (an oversimplification as the recessionand poor financial planning had something to do... More

Orchestra Hall is a very beautiful building. The concert we attended was wonderful. Everyone there was extremely nice and professional. It was a very nice evening.

The strong and excellent acoustic design has made MN Orchestra Hall a wonderful place to enjoy fiddle, orchestra music. The sound system is excellent. The hall is quite big to accommodate a good number of audiences. One problem: there is no phone network inside the hall due to it's strong acoustic construction. No free wifi as well. So no facebooking,... More

A first class venue in Minneapolis since 1975, Orchestra Hall features finely-engineered acoustics even from the balcony levels. Employees are friendly and helpful, the lobby is spacious and there are several well-stocked bars (but pre-concert drinks & snacks will cost you some coin--with automatic gratuity added... there IS a Caribou Coffee right next door, though--just across the adjacent courtyard on...

My husband and I finally had a chance to see and hear a Minnesota Orchestra concert, since Orchestra Hall recently re-opened after their remodeling project. We took in a special Strauss concert on October 17th, which had musicians in chamber groups to the full orchestra. As usual, the music was presented with much flair and expertise. We believe that Osmo... More

As the "Doc" mentioned below has opined, the Minnesota Orchestra is the best in the world. As another visiting artist said, you can go up and down the entire orchestra, and every single player sounds great. The new hall's great acoustics house these splendid musicians. Plus, they are a fascinating group of people as well. Check out some of the... More

We were present for Osmo Vänskä's return to the podium and it was a breathtaking experience. Staff was more than helpful, audience was respectful (but we need more young people representing the concertgoers!) and the sound was to die for. If you can make it to ANY performance here, jump at the chance!
