The MSO’s 3-week Water Festival opens with a splash – Tan Dun’s concerto brings water front and center as an integral percussion element to create an enthralling orchestral experience for the eyes and ears. Smetana’s symphonic poem captures the love of his Czech homeland, while Hailstork evokes the bustling energy of a busy port city. Britten’s Four Sea Interludes close the program with coastal scenes from his towering, stormy opera Peter Grimes.


The MSO is pleased to feature the following community partners as part of our 3-week Water Festival. Learn more about how water plays an important role in our greater Milwaukee region!
