Minnesota River Valley travels to the great state of Minnesota and sails down the Mississippi River in four distinctive movements. Beginning with "Magnificent Minnesota," the suite opens with a majestic fanfare followed by a flowing, lyrical theme. The second movement, "Minnesota River Adventure," features bold and sweeping arpeggios in the right hand with a dramatic bass line to celebrating this historical, mile-wide river. "Lady's Slipper Waltz," the third movement, is a delicate waltz representing the beautiful orchid that is the state flower. The final movement, "Riverboat Rag," brings the suite to a spirited close with a toe-tapping, ragtime beat. "Magnificent Minnesota" and "Minnesota River Adventure" are Federation Festivals 2016-2020 selections.
