ABOUT THE ENSEMBLE
Established in 1903, the Minnesota Orchestra is a Grammy Award-winning orchestra known for acclaimed performances in its home state and around the world, a storied history of recordings and radio broadcasts, and innovative educational engagement programs. The orchestra performs a wide variety of music including nearly 175 concerts in a typical year, primarily at Orchestra Hall in downtown Minneapolis, its home since 1974. They also tour regularly throughout Minnesota, nationally and abroad. The quintet has played together for 15 years and has performed together and individually in every US state and throughout Europe, Asia, Australia, South America, and Africa. They have performed in major concert venues worldwide and with all of the leading US orchestras including the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra, Boston Symphony, LA Philharmonic, and Chicago Symphony.

The Minnesota Orchestra Brass Quintet will present an eclectic, entertaining, and virtuosic program featuring songs of joy from around the world inspired by dance rhythms of many cultures. The program will include the music of Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Astor Piazzolla, and Paquito D’ Rivera as well as African American spirituals, and brand new works by award-winning composer Jack Stamp.

Classical Movements has been presenting the annual Ihlombe! South African Choral Festival across the country since 2009 and is the same company that brought the Minnesota Orchestra, as the first professional US Orchestra to tour to Africa, on their groundbreaking tour to South Africa in 2018. This time, they are bringing two renowned American chamber ensembles to the country.
