" Feed the body food and drink, it will survive today. Feed the soul art and music, it will live forever." - Dame Julie Andrews.

Patrick MilesWelcome to the 68th season of the CWSO - we invite you to take a seat at the table! A colorful banquet is presented for you this season filled with luscious offerings of loved classics seasoned with outstanding soloists from the Upper Midwest and beyond. From soup to nuts, each concert promises something for everyone's tastes!

Starting in the fall, David Taylor, Associate Concertmaster of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, joins the CWSO on the stage in performance of Beethoven's Violin Concerto.

Our holiday repast includes the beloved Messiah in partnership with the UW-Stevens Point choirs.

We're rolling out the red carpet and popcorn in February to feature Dr. Lawrence Leviton, our resident cellist and Music in Film expert, bringing music from Hollywood blockbusters out just in time for the Academy Awards. And, to round out the menu, Lawrence will also perform a world premiere composed just for him by Charlie Barnett (of Chaise Lounge fame).

The final course in April features piano artist Dr. Stijn DeCock, performing Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1, and concludes with Beethoven's Third Symphony 'Eroica'.

We know that your palate will be satisfied!.
