The MSO’s Water Festival concludes with waves of beautiful sound showcased by MSO principal musicians. Takemitsu’s homage to the sea features alto flute, harp, and strings to evoke the “spiritual domain” of water and nature, while Ludwig’s concerto for bassoon captures the poetic fluidity of water as it relates to life. Debussy’s iconic La mer, inspired by the rich and shifting moods of the Mediterranean Sea, closes the program.


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!
