Please join us to celebrate our 45th season of performing dazzling symphonic music. We are thrilled to perform two of Brahms’ concertos with world-class soloists Richard Lin, Gold Medalist of the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis and Kenneth Broberg, Silver Medalist of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. We cherish the holiday spirit with favorite Christmas classics including “The Nutcracker”, with an elegant ballet performance by the dancers of Diamond School of Dance. Don’t miss “Peter and the Wolf”, the most beloved masterpiece for young audiences at the February concert. The Chippewa Valley Festival Choir will join us to celebrate Mr. Beethoven’s 250th birthday, performing his mighty “The Ninth Symphony”. Please come to experience the power of live music!
