#Minnegeddon — name change from Minneapolis Symphony to Minnesota Orchestra …s d reply…

SDS says, “Mr. Cornell, you forget that the Minnesota Orchestra is the same orchestra as the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra”

The significance of the name change of the Minneapolis Symphony to Minnesota Orchestra in the 70’s cannot be over-emphasized. Without anyone realizing it, it seems the orchestra was taken into a different dimension, so to speak, and that has resulted in nothing but turbulence.

For anyone interesting in a clue, all they need do is look to Mozart’s last major opera and a character with a name that is quite similar to “Minnesota”. Of course, there was no “Minnesota” in 1791.

One might also consider Mahler’s last words…:-0
