MSO opens ‘From the New World’ season

The Minot Symphony Orchestra will open its 90th season, “From the New World," Saturday (Oct. 10) with a new music director at its helm. Efrain Amaya will direct MSO in “Scandinavian Celebration,” its first concert of a new era, in Ann Nicole Nelson Hall, 7:30 p.m.

This concert celebrates the 150th anniversary of the births of Scandinavia’s most famous composers, Carl Nielsen and Jean Sibelius. Nielsen’s opera, “Maskarade (Masquerade),” is often denoted as the national opera of Denmark. Sibelius’ compositions inspired the Finnish people’s struggle for independence from the Russian Empire. Dianna Anderson, assistant professor of music, will also bring Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 to life.

Minot State University students, faculty and staff are admitted free with a current ID. Ticket prices for adults are $25 main floor and $30 balcony; senior citizen is $20 main floor and $25 balcony; students 12-18, $15; children, $10. Symphony patrons are invited to join Erik Anderson, associate music professor, for a 6:30 p.m. preconcert lecture for an inside look at the symphony program. For more information about MSO, visit
