Education and Community Engagement

The Minnesota Orchestra’s education programs reach young people in our community with accessible and enriching programming, including concerts and classroom activities. At the heart of our youth education programming is the Young People’s Concert program – a century-old tradition that is continually refined to make concerts more accessible and enriching to young audiences. We also engage the public through the side-by-side rehearsal program with youth orchestras, the Symphonic Adventures program in high school auditoriums, and a wide range of collaborative events and concerts in the lobby and Target Atrium. These programs engage more 60,000 youth annually.

Each year, the Minnesota Orchestra reaches more than 250,000 people of all ages through performances and presentations at Orchestra Hall. Music Director Osmo Vänskä and the musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra annually design and perform a classical concert season that has established the Orchestra as one of the world's greatest. In addition, the Live at Orchestra Hall series features popular music, jazz, Broadway classics, movie scores, world music and more. The season also includes a wide range of seasonal holiday programming delight and the annual Sommerfest series.

The Common Chords program connects the Minnesota Orchestra with communities in Greater Minnesota for a week of engaging activities and performances. The Orchestra also tours nationally and internationally, and offers free, outdoor concerts each summer through the Symphony for the Cities program. Finally, the Orchestra continues its broadcast partnership with Minnesota Public Radio, which features select performances on nationally-broadcast American Public Media programs. These broadcasts are heard by thousands of listeners each week, and approximately one million each season.
