The Minnesota Orchestra's season was cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic, and many of you have told us that you're longing to hear them play again.
We can't reopen Orchestra Hall, but we can bring back some of our favorite performances from the not-too-distant past.
This week's encore program takes us back to September 2019 when the orchestra began their program with a mystic and magical work for strings by Vaughan Williams, and ended with the Symphony No. 15 by Shostakovich. Sometimes described as a Cradle-to-the-Grave work, it's a journey you won't want to miss.
