They're back! Minnesota Orchestra overwhelmed with ticket orders

Posted by: Graydon Royce under Classical, Orchestras, Tickets Updated: January 23, 2014 - 10:42 AM

All doubt that the returning Minnesota Orchestra would generate much interest has been dashed. The organization's web site has been overwhelmed by demand for the Feb. 7-8 and Feb. 14-15 homecoming concerts.

Tickets can also be purchased by phone at 612-371-5656. Stanislaw Skrowaczewski will conduct Beethoven's Third on the 7th and 8th. Yan Pascal Tortelier will lead Holst's The Planets and the Elgar Cello Concerto the following weekend.

Spokeswoman Gwen Pappas said the greatest demand is for the Feb. 7 concert. There are still several hundred tickets available for that night. The remaining concerts are about half sold, Pappas said shortly before 11 a.m.

The orchestra is expected to announce its classical subscription season for the remainder of the year on Friday morning.
