Civic Symphony of Green Bay
The Civic Symphony of Green Bay is a community orchestra that offers volunteer and professional musicians the chance to perform beautiful symphonic pieces. The Civic Symphony was founded in 1995 by a committee from the St. Norbert College music faculty. Through education outreach and collaboration with local groups, they're an important part of the Northeast Wisconsin community. The Civic Symphony of Green Bay is a member of The Association of Wisconsin Symphony Orchestras and is supported by the community through ticket sales, donations, and sponsorships. Tickets for the season or individual concerts are available on their website.
The volunteer musicians that play in the Civic Symphony of Green Bay are professional musicians and amateurs of all ages from all walks of life, drawn together by the love of great symphonic music and the desire to share it with others. Members from the Green Bay area are joined in the orchestra by musicians from many other communities within Northeastern Wisconsin. Under the baton of Seong-Kyung Graham, the orchestra typically offers a season of four evening concerts including a "family concert" that is also presented during the day for students from area schools.
Since the beginning of the 2006-2007 season the Civic Symphony has performed all its concerts at the Meyer Theatre in downtown Green Bay. They play well-loved favorites such as Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf and Gershwin’s Piano Concerto in F. The selections offer something for everyone, whether you’re a fan of traditional arrangements or prefer contemporary, playful selections.
