The Arts in Linden Hills

Southwest High School has perhaps the most highly-regarded performing arts program in the state.  

Theater, Band, Choir, Dance — all receive numerous statewide awards, and all are led by talented and dedicated teachers and directors.

3-5 member Jazz combos  are the feature of the

SW Jazz program, along with the new Guitar Program, the traditional Big Band, and a Dixieland Jazz Bands.  

The Orchestra Program includes both Chamber and String Orchestras, and an award-winning Wind Ensemble.

The Southwest Singers is a co-ed audition choir whose repertoire includes classical, jazz and pop music, and which has consistently scored superior ratings at state and national music competitions.

Chamber Singers is a co-ed audition choir specializing in madrigals and a cappella.

And the Southwest Theater Program is second to none in the entire state.   Well, sometimes, we get voted #2 or #3.  Coming up May 15th, Unhinged Theatre presents "Ordinary Days" in the Black Box Theater.  

MUSEUMS & GALLERIES

Everett and Charlie Gallery

Located in Linden Hills at 2720 West 43rd Street.."where art meets experience."

Jimmy Wilson Gallery

The Bakken Museum

A one-of-a-kind museum exploring the mysteries of our electrical world, and inspiring a passion for science and its potential for social good.

Minnesota Streetcar Museum

A ride on one of our historic streetcars takes you back to the early 1900s, the era of electric mass-transit. It’s a trip back in time aboard a “museum on wheels."  The kids love it. 

The Museum of Russian Art

Not quite Linden Hills, but I love TMORA.  It's intimate and entirely unique, Twin Cities’ window to into Russian art, history, and culture.

The Southwest High School Guitar Program room has a wall of windows, and two walls with thirty guitars hanging on them.  Amps and drums and keyboards, too.  The leader of the program teaches 5 classes per day, and also puts on a super cool event called STRUT: Guitar Festival.
