For the sixth year in a row, the CWSO participated in the League of American Orchestras' "Orchestras Feeding America." Thanks to all of our concert attendees for their donations, benefiting UW-Stevens Point's "The Cupboard," collecting 140.7 pounds of food and $32 - all for students experiencing food insecurity at this most important time of the semester! And, big congratulations to Mary Ann Stoltz, who was the winner of the drawing on Sunday! Mary Ann scored a pair of season tickets to the 2017-18 "A Vintage Season!"

Dr. Stijn De Cock joined the UWSP faculty just when the CWSO's new concert grand piano was installed in Sentry's Theater @1800. He graciously performed the Liszt "Totentanz" to showcase the capabilities of the piano. Dr. De Cock will be leaving Stevens Point for a faculty position at Florida State University at the end of the academic year. We are honored to have him once again demonstrate his artistry on our magnificent piano, performing Tchaikovsky's lush "Piano Concerto No. 1" on April 22 and 23. Please enjoy Dr. De Cock's YouTube recording of "Totentanz," then do yourself a favor and visit cwso.org for your tickets to the CWSO's last concerts of the season! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoDT2NsWstM
