WYSO, the Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestra, which began over 50 years ago, has grown to provide a full array of orchestral training and performance opportunities to over 400 young musicians between the ages of 8 and 18. Three full orchestras, two string orchestras, a chamber music program and a broad selection of ensembles and workshops make up the core of the WYSO program.
On this All About Living program, you will be treated to an amazing performance by one of the WYSO string quartets. Members of the quartet are local high school students Anne Sophie Brilla, Meera Bradley, Monona Suzuki, and Andrew Siehr. Sharing the WYSO story are Bridget Fraser, Executive Director, Cyrena Pondrom, a longtime WYSO supporter, and Karl Lavine, Director of the WYSO Chamber Music Program.
Performances are integral to the WYSO program. Unless otherwise indicated, concerts are held on the UW-Madison campus. For more information about upcoming WYSO performances, go to wysomusic.org.
