"Friends of the Civic" is a membership level of the Civic Orchestra of Minneapolis that was created to develop and nurture a community of people who enjoy making and listening to music together. Friends are eligible for preferred seating at our concerts, and are invited to atttend our pre-concert talks in the hour prior to each concert. These talks give us all an opportunity to learn more about the music on the program, whether we're revisiting masterworks or introducing new or unknown compositions.
You can become a friend of the Civic by joining at the $50.00 level (or above). Please do not delay. Most of our concerts are free and we want to keep access open to all. We depend on your financial support to make that happen. Join the Friends now and I look forward to seeing you at the first concert of our new season.
