The Minnesota Orchestra announced that conductor Sarah Hicks will lead the Minnesota Orchestra’s ‘Live at Orchestra Hall’ concert series through the 2020-21 season, and that composer Kevin Puts will continue as director of the Orchestra’s Composer Institute through the 2019-20 season.

Sarah Hicks will continue to conduct numerous concerts each season and oversee artistic planning for all Live at Orchestra Hall concerts.

Kevin Puts extends his commitment following the success of his initial three years as director of the Composer Institute, an acclaimed professional composer training program that the Orchestra offers annually in conjunction with the American Composers Forum. Since 2014, Puts has led the Institute in providing training and mentorship to 21 emerging composers, whose music was performed by the Orchestra during the Institute weeks. Seven additional composers have been selected for the Minnesota Orchestra’s 15th annual Composer Institute, which will be held the week of November 6, 2017, culminating in a public Future Classics concert on November 10, led by Music Director Osmo Vänskä.
