Recently was Home Alone w/MN Boys Choir & the orchestra, last was Vocal Essence/Sounds of Blackness and others were Looney Tunes, a small play & ballet accompanying the orchestra and other varying instrument soloists....

My daughter's choir was asked to perform at Orchestra Hall. They have an excellent performance space off of the main lobby. During the holiday season, they offer it to High school choirs. This a nice little treat for the patrons who are attending a concert in the main hall.

There isn't one thing that I can possible say that would make you not want to go visit the Minnesota Orchestra.

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

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...
