MSW “Courtly Intrigue” Concert Cancelled

Due to recent recommendations from Governor Tim Walz and Health Commissioner Jan Malcom regarding COVID-19, MSW is cancelling our May 2nd performance. Our hope is to be able to return to rehearsals in time to prepare for our June 10th Centennial Lakes concert. Additional updates to our schedule will be posted here as necessary. We look forward to making music for you again soon.

 
From the Director

“Making fine music come alive is an engaging and worthwhile challenge, as well as a rejuvenating source of joy and gratification that deepens with age and experience. The Minnesota Symphonic Winds takes this all quite seriously, while managing to have a lot of fun in the process!”

— Dr. Timothy Mahr, Conductor
 
In the Community

“Making music with MSW was both exhilarating and invigorating. They hold a remarkable balance between serious music making, warm collegiality, and just plain fun. I wait impatiently for another chance to stand on the podium in front of these friends.”

— Matt Dehnel, Director of Bands, Roseville Area High School

Students in the Twin Cities are blessed with an educational climate that fosters true appreciation for—and mastery of—the arts. MSW is honored to share regular joint concerts with excellent high school ensembles throughout the metro area, including the talented and charismatic folks at RAHS.
