Our production crew was busy last month capturing Rock the Ordway‘s “22 days of opening nights” to celebrate the opening of The Ordway‘s new Concert Hall. MN Original will air a special episode featuring The Ordway later this year.

Scroll down for some behind the scenes shots of Rock the Ordway as taken by our staff.

Congratulations to The Ordway on their beautiful new space and a successful opening celebration!
