Season Finale

Celebrating Pride with Thomas Søndergård

Thu Jun 20 — Sat Jun 22, 2024

Orchestra Hall

~2 hours, including intermission

As the 2023–24 season comes to a close, we’ll have plenty of reasons to celebrate: an extraordinary first season with Thomas Søndergård as our music director and the month-long Pride festivities here in Minneapolis and around the country. In a program close to Thomas’ heart, we invite you to join us for music by composers from the LGBTQ+ community featuring the Minnesota Orchestra return of soloist Francesco Piemontesi and culminating with the fireworks of Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony.

A Few Things to Know

  1. From the age of 7, Thomas Søndergård has wanted to be a musician, as he recalls: “Whenever I heard music on the street—a marching band or something—I would have to find it and watch. I said to my parents: I’d like to be a part of that.”
  2. July 2022 was a busy month for Thomas Søndergård, as he was announced as Minnesota Orchestra’s next music director and married his longtime partner, Swedish baritone Andreas Landin.
  3. The Twin Cities’ official Pride celebrations first began 51 years ago, but it took 41 more years before Minnesota passed a law that allowed same-sex couples to marry.
