National Radio Day: Listen to the Minnesota Orchestra's historic March 13 live broadcast with new audio

To celebrate National Radio Day (Aug. 20), Classical MPR offers a special presentation of our live March 13 broadcast of the Minnesota Orchestra, with remastered audio and new commentary from host Melissa Ousley, as a gift to listeners. On that historic night, the orchestra performed to an audience-less hall amid concerns surrounding the coronavirus.
