Wonderful rendition of The Messiah

The hall alone is worth seeing with its triple balcony and freestanding stairways to get to them. Acoustics are good but likely better if not in the back of the third balcony... read more

We were rudely seated late. I'm not saying it's a good thing to be late, but a couple of the ushers along the way (from the Main Door, to get our program, to Door G) were basically like, "What are you doing? Where are your tickets? You need to wait for the applause to go in." Meanwhile, several other latecomers... More

My friends and I have a season subscription and I cannot say enough good things about the Minnesota Orchestra. Every performance we've been to has been absolutely stunning.

Loved this! A great movie that brings back memories enhanced further with the orchestra. Parking was easy and there are many restaurants close by.

If you're more of a casual fan of music, I'd recommend one of their Inside the Classics concerts where they break down sections and give you some contextual background. It really enhances your enjoyment and experience! If you're a classical music lover and visiting the Twin Cities (or the group has traveled near your town) catching an Orchestra performance is...

Great performance from the MN Orchestra. The music was outstanding and the acting for the young children was funny. I thought it was a great way to expose young children to the orchestra. I attended with 3rd graders.

Each and every time I visit the Minnesota Orchestra I tell myself I need to come here more. We just went to see Ben Folds with the Minnesota Orchestra and it was unbelievable. The acoustics in this place are so incredible that once during the performance Ben asked the audience to sing and it nearly got a standing ovation from... More

My boyfriend and I saw the Rogers and Hammerstein show in April. The orchestra was fantastic. The space is gorgeous. Sarah Hicks is not just a conductor, but she's a commander. I can't wait to go back.

Our family of six with children/young adults ranging in age from 20 to 13 all thoroughly enjoyed The Scandinavian Christmas Concert at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis. Conductor Sarah Hicks was excellent, Minnesota Boys Choir and Authentic Scandinavian Dance to name a few made this event magical. Truly felt the Christmas Spirit envelop us. It's our new family tradition and look... More
