The Milwaukee Public Library is pleased to partner with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra to bring "One City, One Symphony" to our community. Join MSO cellist Kathy Collison for this unique listening party experience. Participants will hear excerpts from Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, featuring "Ode to Joy", and John Adams's "The Wound Dresser" featuring text from Walt Whitman's Civil War poetry, and explore the people and ideas behind these pieces.
The MSO will host a series of listening parties, including one at the Central Library on Saturday, March 8th at 2:00pm in advance of their full performances.
The full performances will be held March 21-23, 2014, led by MSO Music Director Edo de Waart.
If you can't make our listening party, or would like to have one of your own, Central Library has listening kits available for checkout. They are located just outside the Media Room. The cloth bags, provided by the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, contain ten booklists, ten listener's guides and ten download cards. Each bag has a 7-day loan period.
