Minnesota Orchestra: 2023 New Year's Day Celebration

On Jan. 1, 2023, conductor Mei-Ann Chen and the Minnesota Orchestra rang in the new year with a program that opened with Leonard Bernstein’s animated Candide Overture. Then, special guest Awadagin Pratt performed the Minnesota premiere of Jessie Montgomery’s Rounds for Piano and Orchestra, a work written specifically for him. Finally, a New Year’s celebration wouldn’t be complete without the adventure and passion that the orchestra brought with Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s beloved Scheherazade. Listen to the concert now as we prepare for 2024!
