The Wisconsin Philharmonic and WCAP unite to commemorate 65th Anniversary
In honor of The Wisconsin Philharmonic’s 65th Anniversary, they are combining forces with the Waukesha Community Art Project (WCAP) to create a new mural for The Philharmonic’s office. The mural will then be revealed at the March 10 concert.
The artwork is a mixed media piece that will include musical images along with numerous past logos the organization has held as the Waukesha Symphony Orchestra from 1947 to 2010. Similar to musicians practicing their parts and coming together to perform as an orchestra, the students have been working on their individual pieces and will now begin combining them into one cohesive artwork to be revealed at The Philharmonic’
As a thank you, The Philharmonic is providing complementary concert tickets to the WCAP students, giving them the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon of some of the greatest British chamber orchestra works performed by the orchestra they learned about during the project.
The concert, which includes Britten’s Serenade and Simple Symphony, begins at 3pm at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church and will be immediately followed by a brief talkback with soloists Vale Rideout, tenor and Kelly Hofman, horn. Those interested in attending can purchase tickets by calling 262-547-1858 or visiting http://www.wisconsinphilharmonic.org. Tickets are $32 for adults and $22 for students. Children 4 and under are free.
A message from WCAP Executive Director, Page Remmers
The mission of the Waukesha Community Art Project (WCAP) is to help adolescents reach their own potential by developing their self-expression, creativity, leadership skills, and community involvement through quality after school art experiences. As the participants gain confidence through their creative expression, they are empowered to find ways in which their talents can contribute to the community. WCAP is extremely honored that The Wisconsin Philharmonic requested an artwork made by our participants and thanks them for this wonderful opportunity.
