Symphony Soirée

Onstage with the Orchestra

May 19, 2017 at 5:30 p.m.

Join us! Hear the remarkable richness of the MSO’s sound up close, watch bows dance in unison and mallets strike a timpani, while reveling in the soaring melodies of classical masterpieces only inches away from the performers.

Enjoy the musicians’ perspective at Symphony Soirée: Onstage with the Orchestra.  Explore the music of Don Juan though the eyes of the great composers as you share the stage with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, led by Maestro Edo de Waart. Be moved by some of the greatest music ever written, and enjoy getting to know the musicians who teach, enrich, and reside in the Milwaukee community.
