Minneapolis, MN 55403
City Pages' Description
Orchestra Hall has long been one of downtown Minneapolis' landmark performance venues, hosting everything from the Minnesota Orchestra's seasonal offerings of classical music to a wide-spanning itinerary of pop and jazz. Recent renovations have updated its exterior to a new, more timeless modernist style, while still preserving the exquisite acoustics of its renowned auditorium space.
The Minnesota Orchestra, now in its second century and led by Music Director Osmo Vänskä, ranks among America's top symphonic ensembles, with a distinguished history of acclaimed performances in its home state and around the world; award-winning recordings, radio broadcasts and educational outreach programs; and a visionary commitment to building the orchestral repertoire of tomorrow.
Tips from foursquare
Orchestra Hall has been home to the Minnesota Orchestra since 1974. The open glass structure & whimsical blue tubes offer a warm, welcoming ambiance for all concertgoers.
Do not throw objects into the blue tubes... the blue men will emerge and attack.

If you're a student, don't forget to bring your ID to get student rush tickets before a concert!
The annual Concordia Christmas concert is a must. Beautiful music and wonderful performers.
