The Minnesota Orchestra returns to North Community High School auditorium with a program that features Northside artists and performers as well as the first performance of Aaron Dworkin’s The American Rhapsody.

Combining spoken word with composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s evocative Symphonic Variations on an African Air, Dworkin’s multi-disciplinary work weaves together speeches and writings by George Washington to tell a distinctly American story.
