The process of Osmo-sis

"...the world has acquired a new superstar band with a maestro to match."

Here's a rave from the London Times about Osmo Vanska and the Minnesota Orchestra, who leave today for a European tour that takes them to London and the BBC Proms Festival on August 24. You can hear the concert LIVE this Thursday at 1:30pm on Classical Minnesota Public Radio. Along the way, tune in for live tour updates from the musicians as well with Steve Staruch and John Birge.
