Heralded by the New York Times and the Independent, the Minnesota Orchestra continues to advance its illustrious 107-year history under the current leadership of Finnish musical director Osmo Vänskä. Featuring pianist Simone Dinnerstein, A Hero's Life covers works from composers such as Maurice Ravel and Richard Strauss. During the high-energy Boléro, a jazz concerto penned by Minnesotan composer Stephen Paulus and his son, jazz trumpeter Greg Paulus, will make its debut among other jazz-infused works performed by the younger Paulus and acclaimed combo Fat Kid Wednesdays.
Returning from its historic tour to Cuba in May of 2015 and Carnegie Hall last March, the Grammy Award–winning Minnesota Orchestra celebrates its second century as one of America’s premier symphonic ensembles, gathering accolades from publications such as the New York Times.
