Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra

Wed June 24 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$25

Time: 7-8 p.m.; 8:45-9:45 p.m. (two showings each night to allow more people to attend)

The Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra had hoped to begin its summer Concerts on the Square program after a several weeks’ delay, but for now the first four concerts are moved to 2021 (the final two concerts are currently scheduled for Aug. 25 and Sept. 1 at Breese Stevens Field). In their stead, WCO will host screenings of past concerts June 24 and July 22 at the Warner Park Duck Pond. June’s program, at 7 and 8:45 pm, features the 2015 concert “S’Wonderful,” with soprano Amanda Huddleston and tenor Andrew Clark. Find ticket information (and a livestream) at wcoconcerts.org.


press release: The Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra (WCO) has unveiled a new plan for its 2020 Concerts on the Square series, which involves postponing the first four concerts and replacing them with two drive-in performances. Additionally, they’re planning for two live concerts at Breese Stevens Field if playing outdoors is deemed safe in late summer.

The revised approach was necessary to keep attendees safe, while adhering to state and county requirements that don’t allow for large gatherings. The WCO will follow Forward Dane Health Guidelines to determine if the live concerts can occur. A decision will be made in late July.

“We were optimistic in April that if we only delayed the start of Concerts on the Square to late-July that we could still hold live performances downtown,” said Joe Loehnis, WCO’s CEO. “But, as the pandemic continues to affect us all in ways we never could have foreseen, we’ve decided to take creative steps now that will allow us to still share music with our community.”

The new plan for Concerts on the Square looks like this:

  • The first four shows (July 28 – Aug 18) have been postponed into summer of 2021.
  • The WCO, in partnership with the Madison Mallards, will host two “drive-in” concerts on June 24 and July 22 (more information below). Each concert also will be livestreamed on wcoconcerts.org and PBSWisconsin.org for free.
  • The final two Concerts on the Square will be live concerts at Breese Stevens Field on Aug. 25 and Sept. 1.
  • The WCO’s annual ‘runout’ concert to Portage this summer has been canceled.

Drive-in Concerts on the Square

The two drive-in concerts will feature rebroadcasts of the most popular Concerts on the Square performances, thanks to a partnership with PBS Wisconsin. The WCO expects to be able to have 115 vehicles at each concert. The goal is to make it accessible to as many people as possible without risking health and safety.

The basics for each program are:

Location: Warner Park, 2930 N. Sherman Ave., Madison

Cost: $25 per car

Time: 7-8 p.m.; 8:45-9:45 p.m. (two showings each night to allow more people to attend)
