E-Notes—May 2013 Season Finale Times 2!

Two grand finales will close the Civic Music season: the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra on Sat., May 11th and Brass-E5 one week later on Sat., May 18th. Both audience favorites, one is the season finale by tradition and the second is a re-scheduled concert that was cancelled in March. Both concerts begin at 7:30 pm in the Ralph Holter Auditorium at Green Bay West High School.

With the youthful, energetic Francesco Lecce-Chong conducting, the MSO will present an appealing program including the works of Beethoven, Wagner and De Falla.  According to last fall’s membership survey, the symphony orchestra is the favorite performance ensemble. Tickets for this concert are $35 adults, $10 students.

Another survey favorite, the Empire Brass, had to cancel in March, and 4 members of that quintet return with a new name, Brass-E5. They will perform much of the originally scheduled program. Empire Brass tickets will be valid for this concert. For those who discarded their tickets, check in at the table in the lobby and tickets will be given to those on the membership list.  Tickets can be purchased for $25 adults and $10 students.
