Minnesota Orchestra – New Reformation Symphony
In 1830, Felix Mendelssohn composed the Reformation Symphony to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the Augsburg Confession. Now a “New Reformation Symphony” has been commissioned to honor the 500th anniversary of Luther posting the 95 Theses.
This March the Minnesota Orchestra will announce its 2017-18 season schedule, including its premiere of the New Reformation Symphony, tentatively scheduled for November 3-5. The performance will feature Mendelssohn's Reformation Symphony during the first half, followed by the new Reformation Symphony by Sebastian Currier in the second half of the concert. You don't want to miss this special musical event!
