A Few Things to Know

  1. Michael Abels’ Global Warming was composed primarily response to the warming of political relationships worldwide at the end of the Cold War. However, since Abels wrote the piece in 1990, it has taken on new meaning in relation to the climate crisis.
  2. Inspired by the writings of theologian Howard Thurman, Carlos Simon’s Breathe creates space for reflection, peace and calm.
  3. American conductor Tito Muñoz. music director of the Phoenix Symphony, makes his Minnesota Orchestra debut in these concerts.
