Excellent, emotional, wonderful. I could go on and on. The MSO is a must see for visitors and residents alike. Easy parking in structure across the street, with a convenient skywalk that takes you directly into Marcus Center. Great during bad or cold weather. We go to see the MSO at least twice a year. Fantastic! You owe it to... More

The Milwaukee Symphony performs in the very attractive Marcus Center for the Performing Arts with parking in their facility or across the street in the Theatre complex- or if you're lucky, ON the street. There is a nice range of ticket prices and they do a nice job of providing a variety of concerts so you should be able to... More

The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra has a way of out doing themselves. With having excellent special guests to enjoy. They know how to professionally host a show. Enjoy the audio, as well as the visual part of this great symphony orchestra!

Treated ourselves to box seats at this wonderful performance. Orchestra and vocalists were wonderful. We are recent transplants from Chicago where we had been CSO subscribers for over 25 years and were worried we would notice a drop in quality, not so. Our only complaint is the Marcus theater. We don't like the seating although the box seats were great... More

Watching the MSO grow under the baton of Maestro de Waart has been a joy. They are becoming a tight, cohesive ensemble which is comfortable with all the repertoire. I attended last night's performance of the Mozart piano concerto (#18) and the Schubert Great C-Major symphony. Last night was probably my 10th visit to the MSO - it's worth the... More

The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra is flat-out excellent. Visiting artists and conductors are world-class, and clearly Edo de Waart is a draw, with his connections in the music world. I love the way that concerts are put together, combining new and experimental with classical, but tying the pieces together with a common thread. If you get tickets I recommend going to... More

Wonderful afternoon spent with choral music and soloist Ashley Brown. Music was traditional songs. Highlight was Oh Holy Night. The venue was very nice. We got our tickets as a gift and thanked our son many times. Great way to start the Christmas season.

We're fortunate to have such a fine orchestra. The Milwaukee Symphony has consistently received critical acclaim for their artistic achievements under their conductor, Edo de Waart, for their artistic achievements and rightfully so. The individual players are first rate players as well, especially Frank Almond, the concertmaster.

Not enough can be said about Milwaukee's world-class orchestra and their programs! The musicianship for classical as well as pops concerts is first rate. Whether it's Edo de Waart conducting the orchestra or John Williams, what each audience gets is the very best from every player. Every concert is a great experience and acts as a beautiful centerpiece for any... More

I'm not very familiar with classical music but I enjoyed the concert. We went to the pre-concert lecture which helped me understand what I was listening to :-) Knowing one of the members of the orchestra added to the enjoyment of the concert.
