Minnesota Orchestra New Year's Celebration

Ring in the new year with the Minnesota Orchestra!

The program opens with Bernstein’s animated Overture to Candide. Awadagin Pratt performs the Minnesota premiere of Jessie Montgomery’s Rounds for Piano and Orchestra, a work written for him. A New Year’s celebration wouldn’t be complete without adventure and passion, and the Orchestra brings that in multitudes in Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s beloved Scheherazade.

Join Melissa Ousley for the Minnesota Orchestra’s New Year’s Celebration on Monday, January 1st at 4 on Classical New Hampshire!
