Strang Partners With Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra

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.
