The home of the Minnesota Orchestra opened in 1974 on Nicollet in downtown Minneapolis. Since then, it has drawn over 10 million people to the orchestra's concerts. Orchestra Hall is most known for its acoustics and aesthetically-pleasing interior — 114 large cubes make up a "falling rock" pattern on the auditorium's ceiling and stage's back wall.
The Minnesota Orchestra itself is more impressive than the venue. The Grammy Award-winning orchestra is known for acclaimed performances, recordings and radio broadcasts, and innovative educational engagement programs. Get your tickets to enjoy everything from complete Beethoven symphonies to newly composed works, or one of their Movies & Music shows for a screening of your favorite film with a live score. As an organization, the Minnesota Orchestra is committed to increasing the accessibility of its concerts and offers discounted tickets to select shows for seniors and students, educators, and people under 40.
You're treating your ears to the concert, so why not treat your tastebuds, too with dinner before the show. The News Room has an eclectic American menu with a unique theme environment, The Local is one of Minneapolis' many pubs with delicious bites, and Barrio serves modern Latin tapas, tacos, and margaritas from their amazing tequila bar. All three are about a block away from Orchestra Hall.
