I've seen the MSO perform several times. At certain performances, I've noticed that my breathing slows down and once in a while I've even closed my eyes. While you could never fall asleep because you wouldn't want to miss a moment of the performance, it...More

The Milwaukee Symphony is truly world class! Always excellent performances with great guest performers. The acoustics and comfort of the venue are perfect. It's one of our favorites.

I have been to countless concerts over the years and they are always above average to fantastic. Mark has really gotten the city back on track with supporting its symphony. My only 'beef' is with the concert goers who almost always give a standing ovation....More

You bet it is. We went to the holiday pops concert this past December. Prices were about as expected, but the seats were wide and comfortable and the performance was outstanding. We are planning a return trip with all the family we can get to...More

Marvelous seats--twelfth row from the orchestra, center third. Appreciative crowd. Tremendous, original, emerging virtuosity exhibited by the young (26 year-old) Finnish conductor, who seemed rather to undulate, rather than conduct. Was admitted "back-stage" after the concert to personally congratulate Rouvali for his tremendously perceptive interpretation...More

The orchestra is wolrd class and the Marcus Theater is a wonderful venue. My only criticism would be that they do not perfrom often enough and rarely outside the Maruc Theater. Wish there were more performances, but truly magnificnet.

We attended the "Music of Mad Men" Pops concert in June and certainly enjoyed the show. The conductor was Steven Reineke (from Carnegie Hall). He was very personable and the songs he chose were very entertaining. The best part of the show was hearing the...More
