Minnesota Orchestra: Love That Dare Not Speak

June 1 @ 8:00 pm

$12 – $50

About This Concert

For much of musical history, LGBT musicians and composers were marginalized and censored, even as they permanently transformed the landscape of classical music. In this concert, we celebrate the talent and legacy of composers who ignored convention and created lasting masterpieces.
