Tune in here on Friday, May 19 at 9PM (ET) for a world premiere choral work in semi homage to George Floyd

We're coming to you from Minneapolis, Minnesota for a series of concert highlights from the Minnesota Orchestra 2022/23 season.

This program features the world premiere choral work by Carlos Simon with text by librettist Marc Bamuthi Joseph, commissioned by the Minnesota Orchestra for the community as a semi homage to George Floyd.

Titling their work brea(d)th, Simon and Joseph embrace what they call "the aspiration of racial equity through music-centered community healing" and will make visits to Minneapolis over the next year to create the composition in consultation with community members, aiming to lead audiences on a path of reflection, intention and organized hope.
