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.

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. It was also dark there so that I could not read the program.
