Milwaukee Symphony Neighborhood Residency 2018: Bay View!
The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and the Bay View community present Symphony in the Neighborhood. From porches to bars to markets, we’ll bring the music out of the concert hall and into the community where people live, work, and play. Our week-long residency project includes a free full-scale symphony performance at Bay View High School (Tuesday, April 10) and a Secret Symphony pop-up performance at Milwaukee Blacksmith (Saturday, April 14).
Bay View Neighborhood Association and the Milwaukee Symphony are sponsoring a food drive for the Bay View Community Center throughout the week. In addition to a common drop-off space at the Bay View Community Center, there will also be boxes available at the following events:
