Take in the masterpiece that brought Anton Bruckner wide acclaim with Chippewa Valley Symphony Orchestra’s performance of his Symphony No. 7. A result of a lifetime of musical study and inspired by the works of his idol, Richard Wagner, this pinnacle of symphonic writing showcases lyric melodies and soaring harmonies, intricate details and grandiose emotions.

Tickets are available at the Pablo Center box office by phone (715-832-2787), email (boxoffice@pablocenter.org), in person (Mon-Fri 10a-2p + 1 hour before Pablo Center events), online, or on the AXS app.


Flute Recital by CVSO Principal Flute Tim Lane

The Chippewa Valley Symphony Orchestra presents a new recital by Principal Flute Tim Lane, with piano accompaniment provided by Alexander Woods and Szu-Ling Wu. The recital was recorded at Skyline Studios in Eau Claire and includes works by Bach, Lunde Jr., and Pesch. We hope you enjoy this midwinter treat, created especially for CVSO’s patrons.
