MUSICIANS OF THE MINNESOTA ORCHESTRA

Friday-Saturday: For their first concert of the new year, the Musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra are joined by the Minnesota Chorale, the Minnesota Orchestra’s chorus and conductor Hugh Wolff, former music director of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra.

The program also includes Beethoven’s “Coriolan” Overture and Benjamin Britten’s purely orchestral “Sinfonia da Requiem,” written at the start of World War II as a statement of his philosophy of nonviolence.
