I went to a subscription concert for the Minnesota Orchestra. (Disclaimer; My husband is also a symphony musician so I went to see some of his acquaintances play.) This is a first class orchestra and the hall is very beautiful. You feel quite close to...More

The Minnesota Orchestra is truly world class, and their conductor Osmo Vanska is one of the most interesting interpreters on the scene today. Not to be missed!

We really enjoyed our time at the Minnesota Orchestra. It is a beautiful venue. Go early sometimes they have local beer brewers and you can sample their beers. Also take advantage of the happy hour prices.

Saw 'Russian Nights' performance on Friday, February 17th. The venue is well worth seeing and, on this particular evening, the show was a great value. Encore piano performance of Rachmaninoff by Behzod Abduraimov. He is truly talented.

I am not sure. When I went to the orchestra, I sat in the balcony. Not sure what the sight lines will be. My guess is that the screen will be above the orchestra so you should be okay.
