Mississippi Valley Orchestra, in its 41st season, relies solely on donations from the Twin Cities area.
Mississippi Valley Orchestra brings the Twin Cities community together with high quality classical concerts under the baton of Artistic Director Brian Dowdy. Musicians have a chance to play symphonic, large-ensemble works, and audiences attend high quality concerts featuring professional musicians, including musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra, and young, upcoming artists such as the winners of the St. Paul Piano Teachers Association concerto competition.
All of our expenses are paid by donations from community members. Orchestra musicians pay no dues. Audiences pay only what they can, allowing families and low-income individuals to attend a live, classical orchestra concert.
MVO performs four concerts every season, at First Lutheran Church in Columbia Heights and Augustana Lutheran Church in West St. Paul. This season, we performed at a new venue - St. Paul's United Church of Christ. We list our concerts and much more about our organization on our website: http://mississippivalleyorchestra.com.
