Planning for the 2021-2022 EMSO Concert Season is Underway!

EMSO’s Board and Programming Committee are hard at work planning and preparing for the 2021-2022 concert season! EMSO is currently working on determining repertoire, securing rehearsal space, and preparing any necessary COVID-19 precautions for our orchestra and audience members.  Mark your calendars for our four major concerts of the season and get ready to start the music.

All concerts are subject to change.

Beethoven (Belated) Birthday Bash
Sunday, May 22, 2022 – St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, North St. Paul, MN

Your event wasn’t the only party postponed by COVID! EMSO will present this concert in celebration of Beethoven’s 250th birthday (even if we’re a little late!).

Each of these concerts will include a companion Symphonies for Seniors concert at a local senior living facility within a week of these presentations. Dates and locations for these concerts have not been set yet as some of the senior residences are still evaluating their COVID policies.

We look forward to welcoming everyone back to our concerts! If you have any suggestions or ideas for EMSO’s 2021-2022 Concert Season, please contact EMSO president Stephen Thompson at [email protected].
