The Minnesota Orchestra and Music Director Osmo Vänskä will perform orchestral works by seven emerging composers at its January 29 “Future Classics” concert as part of its thirteenth Minnesota Orchestra Composer Institute, co-presented with the American Composers Forum. The seven works on the program are Kristen Broberg’s Celestial Dawning, Matthew Browne’s Barnstorming Season, Joshua Cerdenia’s Mayagon, Emily Cooley’s Scroll of the Air, Nick DiBerardino’s Asphodel, Michael Gilbertson’s Sinfonia After Vivaldi, and Anthony Vine’s Transmission. Kevin Puts is in his second year as director of the Composer Institute, during which composers spend a week in seminars, rehearsals, tutoring sessions, and other events. The January 29 concert is being streamed live at Minnesota Public Radio.
