Sentry Theater @ 1800

Concert I - To Your Health!

Oct. 12, 2013 (7:30 pm) Oct. 13, 2013 (4:00 pm)

"The power of music to integrate and cure...is quite fundamental. It is the profoundest nonchemical medication." - Oliver Sacks, Awakenings

The CWSO welcomes world-renowned violinist Rachel Barton Pine in this first concert of the 65th season! Her recording of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto with the Gottinger Symphonie Orchester on the Cedille Record label will be hot off the presses at the debut concert of our 65th season. Also on the program is Beethoven's 7th Symphony, written at a Bohemian spa in the hopes that the composer would improve his health. The work was premiered in Vienna on December 8, 1813 at a charity concert for wounded soldiers.


Concert II - Glorious Holiday

Dec. 7, 2013 (7:30 pm) Dec. 8, 2013 (4:00 pm)

"Of all the music that reached farthest into heaven, it is the beating of a loving heart." - Henry Ward Beecher

Welcome the holidays with the sparkling Vivaldi Gloria as Lucinda Thayer, Director of Choral Activities at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, leads the finest high school voices of Central Wisconsin in making a jouful noise! With a focus on youth, the concert will also feature the winner of the biennial CWSO Young Artist Competition.


Concert III - Healthy Excursions

Feb. 22, 2014 (7:30 pm) Feb. 23, 2014 (4:00 pm)

"My idea is that there is music in the air, music all around us; the world is full of it, and you simply take as much as you require."- Edward Elgar

Stay right here in Central Wisconsin and travel with concertmaster Steven Bjella as he performs Barber's Violin Concerto, partially written in Switzerland in 1939. Interrupted by the impending war, the work was complete in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. Robert Schumann's "Rhenish" Symphony was inspired by a peaceful pilgrimage that the composer experienced with his wife Clara.


Concert IV - Choral Jubilee

Apr. 12, 2014 (7:30 pm) Apr. 13, 2014 (4:00 pm)

"There is no feeling, except the extremes of fear and grief, that does not find relief in music." - George Eliot

In celebration of an honored past and looking forward to a healthy future, the CWSO is joined by two revered choirs in Central Wisconsin to present Brahms' A German Requiem. A departure from the traditional Requiem mass, the beloved choral work "is clearly not intended to be performed as a mass for the dead, but rather as a comfort and consolation about the dead, for the living."
