MSO on StarTribune’s Top Ten List

StarTribune Top Ten List – Fizzing with Affection
Terry Blain, the classical music critic for the StarTribune newspaper, listed our performance of The Boor as one of the ten best classical music events of 2017 in Minnesota.  Here’s what he had to say:

“The Boor,” Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, Oct. 15: Minnesota composer Dominick Argento turned 90 this year, and it fell to one of the Twin Cities’ amateur ensembles to pay the most consequential tribute. The MSO’s semi-staged production of Argento’s one-act opera fizzed with affection.

You can find the full article here.

Mr. Blain also noted terrific performances by the Minnesota Orchestra (with and without the Minnesota Chorale), Peter Serkin, the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and the Bakken Trio, so we are feeling pretty good about the company we keep.  We knew this was pretty special when we did it, but it’s nice to have this acknowledged by the major print media source for Minnesota.
