About Minnehaha Music:
Minnehaha Music was founded in 2013 by Craig Randal Johnson and Hilary Santoni. Our mission is to cultivate a passion for great music by providing high quality experiences engaging both musicians and audiences. We are grateful for a partnership with the Edina Community Foundation.
A repertory orchestra reads and rehearses music from the well-known orchestral literature, less performed works from the standard orchestral literature, as well as newly composed music. This format (more rehearsal sessions, fewer formal performances) affords the participant the opportunity to challenge and further develop her/his musical skill set, promote advanced musicianship, and broaden one’s knowledge of orchestral music. Generally we hold reading/rehearsal sessions every other Saturday morning at Edina High School.
