Weidner Philharmonic: Women’s Work – Saturday, September 24, 2022 | 7:30 PM
This unique program is composed entirely of women with inspiration from our backyard to the farthest reaches of the globe. This surprising, eclectic, and fun concert features a world premiere, a familiar piece with deep Wisconsin roots; a composition inspired by a faraway Indonesian volcano, and a finale that is scored for a full orchestra and audience members who are not passive listeners but are part of the score as active participants. We’re reimagining what a night at the symphony can be!
UW-Green Bay Chancellor Michael Alexander and Robert Nordling return to the Wei Phi podium, and we will welcome internationally renowned viola soloist Michael Hall.
