Season Updates

46th Season – 2020-2021

For the safety of our patrons, musicians, and staff, the Chippewa Valley Symphony’s 2020-2021 season has transitioned to virtual offerings. Check the Music tab on our website to see the video series “Local Color: A Celebration of Local Art and Music” and to enjoy the “A Wreath of Carols” virtual Christmas concert.

47th Season – 2021-2022

We hope to invite live audiences back to Pablo Center at the Confluence during the fall of 2021 to open CVSO’s 47th season. While we are hard at work planning a full season, the ability to host in-person concerts will be dependent on public health conditions and the re-opening of the Pablo Center. We expect to make further announcements about the upcoming season later this spring.
