*Commissioned by the National Kidney Foundation, Transformations of Darkness and Light was written to commemorate 50 years of organ transplantation. The composition was conceived in inspiration and hope and is dedicated to the thousands of organ donors, patients, families, caregivers and researchers who have made transplant surgery a life-sustaining reality. The 4th movement includes 31 sets of tuned wind chimes spaced throughout the concert hall. These will be “rung” by people who have donated an organ, have received an organ, or are family members whose lost loved one contributed an organ. Former Secretary of State, Mark Ritchie, will relate his personal experience of organ donation.

The 2018-19 WSO concert season is funded, in part, by an appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State’s general fund.
