The Minnesota Orchestra is on a hunt for a new music director. Osmo Vanska announced last week that he'll step down in 2022. Under Vanska's baton, the Minnesota Orchestra drew international attention. The group won a Grammy in 2014, and performed in both Cuba and South Africa in addition to multiple European tours. Vanska is also credited with rebuilding the ensemble after a bruising contract dispute and musician lockout that threatened the organization's future.
Guests: Brian Newhouse, managing director of Minnesota Public Radio/American Public Media's classical programming; Bill Eddins, music director emeritus of the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and a frequent guest conductor of major orchestras throughout the world; was an associate conductor with the Minnesota Orchestra in the '90s.
