Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra
Sundays at 7:00 PM
Since its inception in 1959, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra has consistently received critical acclaim for artistic excellence. Today, the MSO continues to reach new heights under the baton of its sixth music director, Edo de Waart. In addition to his present position as Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra’s Music Director, Maestro de Waart is also Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Hong Kong Philharmonic; Chief Conductor and Artistic Advisor of The Santa Fe Opera; Conductor Laureate of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra; and Artistic Partner of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra since the 2010/2011 season. He has also held posts with the Sydney Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, Minnesota and Rotterdam Philharmonic orchestras.
The symphony’s 88 full-time professional musicians perform more than 140 concerts each season. Each of the MSO’s resident musicians is a gifted virtuoso. In addition to performing with the MSO, these musicians provide a strong professional core within Milwaukee’s thriving arts community. Orchestra players make frequent appearances with other local ensembles, perform as soloists internationally, and serve as teachers and mentors to music students and area youth.
