Who We Are

The Musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra are proud to serve our community and our institution by bringing artistic excellence to each and every performance.  We are deeply committed, both individually and collectively, to enriching and vitalizing our community through inspiring performances of timeless classical music.

As stewards of a 110-year legacy, we feel a strong sense of unified purpose in preserving the artistic excellence of this storied ensemble.  From the leadership of past musical giants such as Mitropoulos, Dorati, and Ormandy, to today with Osmo Vänskä on the podium, the Minnesota Orchestra is steeped in a rich tradition of performing orchestral music at the highest level.

Many of you buy tickets, attend concerts, and donate generously. Sharing great music with you is our reason for being. You are our friends and patrons, to whom we are deeply grateful. We are the musicians and we’re glad you’re listening.
