In his 41st and final year as University of Minnesota Organist and Professor of Music, Dean Billmeyer collaborates with the Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphonies’ (GTCYS) flagship orchestra—Symphony—to celebrate his illustrious career as a performer and educator. The program features Billmeyer on Poulenc’s Concerto for Organ, Strings, and Timpani, as well as Dvořák’s complete New World Symphony. This exciting collaboration stretches across generations and celebrates the best of the Twin Cities’ musical talent.
Please join us in the lobby following the concert for cookies, punch, and camaraderie to celebrate Dean Billmeyer's five decades of service to the University of Minnesota.
