About Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra

The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra is an American symphony orchestra based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Founded in 1959, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra is a full-time professional orchestra that performs more than 130 concerts annually. The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra has its roots in two predecessor orchestras: the Milwaukee Philharmonic and the Milwaukee Chamber Orchestra—both of which were founded during the late 19th century.

The Milwaukee Philharmonic was founded in 1889 and gave its first concert in 1890. The Milwaukee Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1934 by Walter Straram as a semi-professional orchestra that gave free concerts in the city's parks. In 1959, these two predecessor orchestras merged to form the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra.

The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra is led by Music Director Edo de Waart. The MSO has its primary performance venue at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Milwaukee. The MSO also gives concerts at the Wisconsin Center, a concert hall located adjacent to the Marcus Center. In addition to its classical subscription series, the MSO presents a pops series and a holiday series. The MSO performs an annual outdoor summer concert series at the Henry Maier Festival Park, home of Summerfest.

The MSO has a regular radio broadcast series on WFMT which is syndicated to public radio stations nationwide. The MSO recorded for Koss Classical Records and RCA Victor Red Seal during the de Waart era and for Telarc during Andreas Delfs' tenure as music director. The MSO is currently recording for the BIS label.
