Minnesota Orchestra Hall

I am fortunate to have gotten tickets to two upcoming events at the Minnesota Orchestra Hall, The Second City Comedy Troupe on February 27 and The Silk Road Ensemble with Yo-Yo Ma on March 16. Tickets to The Second City are $10 for students! I HIGHLY recommend seeing these guys. The group that I have seen was hilarious. Plus, it's where a lot of the actors on SNL got their start.

Check out the Silk Road Project
"I think that in today's world no one grows up listening to one music. Part of being alive in this world is knowing who you are and how you fit in the rest of the world. I’m certainly interested in what the rest of the world thinks and feels and how they want to express themselves in sound." –Yo-Yo Ma
