About Us

Our events combine the company of other Twin Cities classical music lovers, wine and beer, and an enticing buffet with the opportunity to get to know musicians from the Minnesota Orchestra on a more individual, informal basis.

Throughout the season we are pleased to host members of the Orchestra for each ACCENT event and showcase their talent while getting to know them on a personal level.

We deliberately limit attendance to 125 people to keep ACCENT events intimate: come be one of the few to experience this opportunity unique to FRIENDS!

PROGRAM

We leave it up to our guests to decide on their musical programs, but typically they demonstrate their instruments, provide historical insights, discuss details of their approach and training, and of course share personal stories and anecdotes of their careers and travels with the Orchestra. Programs end with performances of pieces they’ve prepared for us – sometimes classical, sometimes modern, sometimes with other musicians joining them, but always special.

2019-20 ARTISTS

This year’s ACCENT series was created to coordinate with the themes and programming of the Minnesota Orchestra and based on suggestions from the many FRIENDS members who graciously responded to our Future of ACCENT online survey in Spring 2019. We are delighted that ACCENT received a 2019 Roundtable Award from the League of American Orchestras as “an outstanding volunteer project based on originality, volunteer involvement, adaptability, and overall success.” Come see why ACCENT won gold!

LOCATIONS

This year we are hosting ACCENT events at either Orchestra Hall (Target Atrium or Veranda) or at HGA/Ford Building. Both are lovely spaces for intimate social and musical gatherings
