“Love this orchestra”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

This orchestra has its own great sound. If they are playing a Beethoven symphony, don't miss it. No one plays Beethoven better.

“One of the best in the US”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

The Minnesota Orchestra is one of the top 10 orchestras in the US. 2012 the Orchestra Hall is being renovated, so the Orchestra is playing at the Ted Mann concert hall and the convention center auditorium. Ted Mann is a smaller venue, but the better choice accoustically.

“One of the better orchestras around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

I know, it's the hometown orchestra, and I'm far from a musical expert, but these folks sound great and perform a wide variety of challenging music. For the 2013 season they are playing in the Convention Center while Orchestra Hall is being upgraded.

Amazing conductor, superb musicians, and not a bad seat in the house -- oh, and internationally renowned. It truly must be experienced.

“Sounds of Great Music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

We held season tickets last year and hated to see our year come to an end. Halloween was a hoot. We watched "Young Frankenstein" accompanied by the Minnesota Orchestra. Sara Hicks was dressed as the Bride of Frankenstein as she directed the finest orchestra in the midwest. Unreal. Also saw The Chieftans perform an exhilarating concert that brought everyone to their feet for a standing "O".
