Organization/orchestra description:

Mission
To provide orchestral performances and music education experiences of the highest
artistic quality to help shape and enrich the cultural life of Northeastern Wisconsin.

History
Great music making starts with exceptional musicians and for 97 years the Green Bay
Symphony Orchestra has been enhancing and shaping the cultural landscape of
Northeastern Wisconsin. Our 60-member, professional Orchestra has grown to world-
class stature in a community that is „small‟ according to National Football League
standards. The GBSO has garnered national press and attention in recent years and
remains financially stable with tremendous individual and corporate support. Guest artists
to have collaborated with the Orchestra include Maxim Vengerov, Jean-Yves Thibaudet,
Jean Philippe Collard, and Dale Duesing. In 2005, the GBSO was granted the Music
Alive composer residency program of the American Symphony Orchestra League and
Meet the Composer and, over the course of the past four years, has had the opportunity to
work with and present new music of composers David Dzubay, Jennifer Higdon, Daniel
Kellogg and Philip Rothman. The GBSO was recently selected as one of only two
orchestras nationwide into the Midori Orchestra Residency Program and in October of
2008 made its first-ever appearance at Lambeau Field performing the National Anthem in
front of 72,000 fans at a Green Bay Packers home game. An essential component of the
GBSO continues to be the supporting of our flourishing Youth Orchestra Program. One
of the longest running programs in the state (currently in its 41st season), the GBSYO
serves approximately 180 students residing primarily in Brown County, but also from 14
surrounding counties including: Calumet, Door, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, Oconto,
Outagamie, and Shawano. Musicians range in age from eight to eighteen, are chosen in
annual auditions, and comprise three orchestras – The String Orchestra – taking entry-
level musicians from the beginning of their playing careers to the next stage; The
Philharmonia – offering young musicians their first opportunity to play in a full
orchestra; The Youth Symphony – where skills are finely tuned and the young performers
become the “complete” player.
