Thomas Wilkins makes his Minnesota Orchestra conducting debut in a soul-stirring performance that centers around Joel Thompson’s Seven Last Words of the Unarmed, a multi-movement choral work that presents the final spoken words of seven African American men who were each killed by the police or authority figures. The Minnesota Chorale and Twin Cities Choral Partners join the Orchestra onstage in this concert that also features Franz Liszt’s poetic Les Préludes and Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s triumphant Fifth Symphony.
