Announcing the 2016-17 Concert Season
We are thrilled to bring you MYSO's 61st concert season, which kicks off on Wednesday, October 12, with a performance by the acclaimed Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Carter Simmons.

The 2016-17 season will feature solo performances by pianist Jeannie Yu and Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra's principal clarinetist Todd Levy, as well as Florentine Opera Studio Artists Ariana Douglas and Leroy Davis on October 12. Click on the image above for the full concert schedule.

Among the over 80 concerts that will be performed, the fine young musicians from Senior Symphony and Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra will be embarking on an international tour to Argentina and Uruguay in July 2017!

Please join us in celebrating another promising MYSO season. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing many of you this year.
