“…the Sinfonia’s performances are easily on par with that of any major Minnesota ensemble.” – Minneapolis Star Tribune
A very special event at the Sheldon, this classical program features mixed repertoire including Mozart’s Jupiter Symphony, Beethoven’s Third piano concerto with guest soloist Loren Fishman, a new commission for the Sinfonia by a Minnesota composer, and The Great Gate of Kiev from Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, performed with local guest musicians.
The Minnesota Sinfonia is a community-supported nonprofit orchestra with a mission to serve the musical and educational needs of the citizens of Minnesota. Founded in 1989, and led by Maestro Jay Fishman, the Minnesota Sinfonia is guided by values of quality, accessibility and education. The Sinfonia orchestra’s professional freelance musicians come from all over the world. Most have graduate degrees from major universities or conservatories, many have prestigious private teaching studios, several have performed with major orchestras, and more than half have been with the Sinfonia for 10 to 20 years or more. Every year, the Sinfonia plays up to 60 free-admission concerts and features award-winning national and international guest soloists.
This event features free education and outreach activities, led by artists. Learn more.
This event is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
