Gautier Capuçon & Yuja Wang Live at the Ordway

The musical duo partnership of Gautier Capuçon and Yuja Wang is one to anticipate with real excitement. Gautier Capuçon is a true 21st century ambassador for the cello. Born in Chambéry, France in 1981, he performs each season with many of the world’s foremost conductors and instrumentalists.

Joining him for this pair of recitals is the charismatic pianist Yuja Wang, the 2017 Musical America Artist of the Year. After she made her Schubert Club International Artist Series debut in 2011, the Star Tribune stated “Wang… is no mere ‘virtuoso’ — a word cheapened by overuse. Hers is demonic, more-than-human pianism, of the sort that gets you thinking about Faustian bargains.” Yuja’s way of making music connects with a strikingly broad demographic.

For their Ordway Concert Hall performances, this exceptional duo will present two different programs on April 3 and April 4, from 10:30am–noon.

Please join us one hour prior to the performance for a pre-concert talk led by David Evan Thomas.

Win Two Tickets to Charlie Parr at the Palace Theatre on November 17

Easily confused and very shy, Charlie Parr has been traveling around performing his Resonator-fueled folk songs ever since leaving Austin, Minnesota, in the 1980s in search of Spider John Koerner–whom he found about 100 miles north at the Viking Bar. The experience changed his life, made him more or less unemployable, and transformed him into the force of nature known to fans today.

Now, you can win two tickets to see him perform at the Palace Theatre with The Ghost of Paul Revere and Jeff Mitchell in St. Paul, Minnesota, on November 17, 2018.
