WISCONSIN CHAMBER ORCHESTRA AT THE SYLVEE

Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra (WCO), the professional chamber orchestra behind Madison’s popular Concerts on the Square, has canceled it’s indoor Masterworks Series due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, the WCO will offer it’s Winter Chamber Series online.

       

In their search for a safe rehearsal and performance venue, Strang partnered with WCO to help them evaluate potential facilities for their Winter Chamber Series. They ultimately chose the Sylvee, largely due to the filtration and ventilation capabilities of it’s HVAC systems.

It was Strang’s pleasure to assist the WCO, a pillar of the Madison performing arts community in finding a safe and comfortable space with which to continue their Winter Chamber Series in its new format.

Starting January 22nd, maestro Andrew Sewell will lead the orchestra’s 34 musicians in chamber works for multiple ensembles which will be recorded and available on-demand. The concerts will be 60-75 minutes long and include WCO musicians sharing stories about the music, as well as post-concert reflections.

THE SYLVEE

The Sylvee, owned by Madison-based Frank Productions, is part of the revival of the city’s Capitol East District Corridor. This 45,000 SF performing arts space was designed by Strang to meet the strong and lasting demand for world-class live music in Madison.

As engineers, architects, and designers, our role extends far beyond just blueprints. The comfort and safety of the building’s occupants is an essential consideration in design. Great office design will install measures to address potential work hazards and keep staff and data safe from the very beginning of the design process. In other words, prevention is the best policy.
While earlier we focused primarily on low voltage design, now it’s time to dive deeper into its close relation: audio/visual (AV) design. AV design is the process of understanding the communication and entertainment needs and goals of a client and thoughtfully developing technology systems to address and meet them.
When planning your new or renovated buildings, the subject of low voltage systems–the backbone of building technology–needs to occur right away rather than be left behind as an afterthought. Proper advanced planning can ensure your low-voltage systems help you operate at maximum levels of performance. And that’s more important now than ever.
