Minnesota is first US orch to play for Syrian refugeesmain
Some two dozen members of the Minn Orch have put together a concert, to be conducted by Osmo Vanska and led by concertmaster Erin Keefe next Sunday, in aid of Syrian refugees.
Tickets are priced at $50 and all proceeds will go to the American Refugee Committee. Booking details here.
Minnesota is the first large music organisation in the US to rally to the humanitarian crisis. In October, Joel Cohen and the Camerata Mediterranea put on an ice-breaker event in Boston. The silence of other arts orgs is stunning.
