2016-2017 Concert Season
This season, we again use the power of music to unlock important issues that face our community, and we celebrate choral/orchestral masterworks in partnership with our friends at the Fox Valley Symphony Orchestra.
A Sea Symphony – Ralph Vaughan Williams
Join us in a special collaboration with the Fox Valley Symphony Orchestra in celebration of their 50th anniversary season!
Ralph Vaughan William’s Sea Symphony is both thrilling and haunting, as it marries energy and melody of the music with text taken from Walt Whitman’s poems entitled Leaves of Grass. This thrilling tale of the sea features intensely powerful passages, gentle acapella choral passages, brass fanfares, and baritone & soprano soloists. Also on the program, William Walton’s Coronation Te Deum, a majestic choral/symphonic work composed for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
This concert is the first in the U.S. VENTURE MASTERWORKS SERIES and is made possible through a generous grant from the U.S. Venture/Schmidt Family Foundation. We also thank newVoices season sponsor COMMUNITY FIRST CREDIT UNION for making this presentation possible for the community.
Tickets are available through the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center box office at 920-730-3760

If politics divide us, our basic rights unite us and our songs of liberty ignite us. Leave the partisan politics at the door, because we will present music that connects all of us to our basic rights as Americans: the freedom to choose representative government in peaceful elections. Our programming will present music of liberty, freedom, and pride underscoring every citizen’s right to participate in government.
We will present this program in collaboration with the League of Women Voters.
