"GBSO's Farewell Season!"

Upcoming Events

full orch

Sunday, November 16…

Want to hear some great music on a budget? Consider attending the Youth Orchestra concert at 4:00pm Sunday, November 16 at the Weidner Center. $10 gets you 90 minutes of wonderful orchestral music. All tickets are general admission and sold at the door starting at 3:00pm.

The concert opens with the youngest group, the String Orchestra, playing their hearts out for about 15 minutes. Next the middle ensemble, the Philharmonia, presents a short program of symphonic work. Then, prepare to be blown away, as the Youth Symphony takes the stage. This orchestra is better than some civic symphonies and performs at an amazing level of proficiency. Their program will consist of the following works:

  • Swan Lake Suite – Tchaikovsky
  • Hungarian March – Berlioz
  • Hansel and Gretel – Humperdinck


So after the Packers beat the Eagles, jump in the car and head out to the Weidner Center for some great music! If you’ve never heard the Youth Symphony, you will wonder why you haven’t attended sooner.

Thanks to Heid Music for their generous sponsorship of this concert.

Why should a community support an orchestra that’s in its final season?

First, without continued support, the ability to produce a final season could be in jeopardy. Ticket sales only cover 25-30% of our operating costs. The rest is entirely dependent on individual and corporate support. Demonstrating that an arts organization can manage its own conclusion gracefully helps position all the arts for more positive community support.

Second, if the support received is strong enough to offset our financial obligations, the surplus will be dedicated to the future of our highly-regarded Youth Orchestra Program – which will continue operating independently of GBSO after the coming season.

If you love great live music, your support is needed now more than ever before.
