A Tribute Concert to Sir Neville Marriner
Thursday, January 26, 2017
Pair of Free Tickets
The Minnesota Orchestra family is deeply saddened by the passing of Sir Neville Marriner, our music director from 1979 to 1986, at the age of 92.
During his seven seasons as our music director, he presided over a number of firsts, including the Orchestra’s first composer-in-residence program (with Libby Larsen and Stephen Paulus) and two international trips, to Australia in 1985 and Hong Kong in 1986, that helped set the stage for our European tours in the late 1990s. And in 1985 he achieved a distinction unique in the Minnesota Orchestra’s annals by becoming the first Orchestra music director to be knighted.
