49th Season Subscription Concerts

Join us in song as we sing the virtues of past, present, and future!

  • Finlandia Forever will commemorate the 100th anniversary of Finnish independence with our favorite Finns, Minnesota Orchestra Music Director Osmo Vänskä and fiddler Sara Pajunen.
  • Bach & Bluegrass Jamboree marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation by marrying Bach and American bluegrass with the help of Monroe Crossing and composer Carol Barnett.
  • Welcome Christmas hails the sounds of Minnesota by saluting Minnesota composers and the 20th anniversary of the Carol Contest.
  • VocalEssence WITNESS: Of Such I Dream pays tribute to the Harlem Renaissance on the centennial of its birth and features the inaugural performance of the new VocalEssence Youth Choral Arts Initiative.
  • The subscription series will conclude with Rutter Returns, a can’t-miss concert that officially kicks off our 50th anniversary with highlights from our first 49 seasons and the world premiere of a new piece written for VocalEssence by international choral luminary, John Rutter, who will be conducting us that evening. We can think of no finer way to mark the occasion.
