Each concert will be in Overture Hall, where the MSO’s concert organ resides.
The first concert will feature solo works performed by Samuel Hutchison, the MSO’s principal organist and curator, Friday, Oct. 11, at 7:30 p.m. Highlighting the concert will be Hutchison’s transcription of the Waltz from Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, and his interpretation of Julius Reubke’s Sonata on the 94th Psalm.

The Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra with pianist Bryan Wallick
BRITTEN | Young Apollo
SAINT-SAENS | Piano Concerto No.5 ‘Egyptian’
BEETHOVEN | Symphony No.5
This year is Benjamin Britten’s 100th anniversary, and we celebrate by opening with Young Apollo, a chamber work that points to the same innovation of his later orchestral works. Camille Saint-Saens composed in many genres from symphonies, concertos, opera and chamber music. The last of his five piano concerti packs a punch and introduces our guest soloist from South Africa, the American born Bryan Wallick. And speaking of punches, Beethoven delivered a black eye to his public when he unleashed his famous Symphony No.5 – a revolutionary symphony from a revolutionary composer.
