2021-22 Season

Rui Du is soloing with the Minnesota Orchestra in celebration of Lunar New Year. He’ll perform The Butterfly Lovers Violin Concerto, a piece beloved in China but not as often performed in the United States. Internationally-known pianist Hanna HyunJung Kim joins husband  and music partner Rui for this most appropriate way to kick off the Year of the Tiger!

ACCENT is grateful to Minnesota Orchestra Concertmaster Erin Keefe and Music Director Osmo Vänskä for faithfully headlining our events annually. This year they bring pianist Mary Jo Gothmann along to premiere a work commissioned by Osmo. FRIENDS plan an epic send-off for Osmo: please join us to be a part of it!

Mezzo-soprano Clara Osowski is an active soloist, chamber musician, and recipient of the prestigious McKnight Artist Fellowships for Musicians. A local girl now on the international stage, Clara is charming on stage and off, and we know she’ll be perfect for ACCENT. In honor of Osmo’s final year, Clara’s program will include Finnish songs as well as her favorite encore selections.

Save money on all three events by purchasing series tickets


We are initially offering all three ACCENT programs as a Series for $185 now, a savings of $45 off purchasing tickets individually. If space remains, we will offer individual tickets at a later date for $65 for January, $65 for February, and $100 for March.
