The Minnesota Mormon Orchestra provides opportunities for LDS musicians in the Twin Cities area to use their instrument in the service of the Lord, increase their talents, and enjoy the camaraderie of making music together.  Orchestras of advanced and professional musicians accompany the Chorale several times each season, while specialized ensembles provide additional opportunities for playing throughout the year. In the 2015-2016 season, the chorale and orchestra will perform together for the following concerts: “I Heard the Bells” on Dec 13, 2015, “Lamb of God: Easter Oratorio” on Mar 11 and 13, 2016, and “Wonder” on April 16, 2016. Currently, the orchestra has openings for oboe, bassoon, horn, trombone, percussion, and strings.

I came expecting it to be good, but I wasn’t prepared to cry…and I don’t cry easily. I have never witnessed a performance of this caliber given all by volunteers in my life. It was truly remarkable.

What an awesome experience we had! You were incredible!…It was another high point in my career. If high points [were] like mountains, this one has to be in the Himalayas.

I love the music, and I love, especially, the Gospel approach to the choir. It’s the first choir, really, that I’ve really been in that has a true Gospel approach, which is wonderful.

We were overwhelmed. Not knowing what to expect, we were impressed beyond words. Since I am retired from ‘Christ the King Lutheran Church’, I did not have the opportunity to do a cantata as part of the passion, crucifixion and resurrection this year so being able to sit and be a part from a different perspective was both spiritually fulfilling and musically rewarding. What a great choir you have. Your soloists were outstanding, the orchestra was magnificent, the narrators were so professional and the work was so well done. Thank you again and again for inviting us.
