The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra has announced that it will be re-imagining their 20-21 season. The new will begin in January 2021 due to the pandemic and the flooding of their concert hall in May.

Indeed, the basement of the Bradley Symphony Center sustained significant flood damage following an intense rainstorm and steam tunnel failure on May 18. Over the summer, most of the damage has been repaired, but the facility is still far from being operational. Unfortunately, this caused a delay and pushed back the orchestra’s occupancy date until January 2021. « In addition », the MSO says, « the world still struggles to react to the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and it has become clear that large-scale gatherings will likely not be a possibility when the building opens in January. So, we need a new plan, one that will allow the music to play on despite these challenges. After careful thought and consideration, we are replacing the concert schedule we announced last spring. We have reimagined the season and it will now include virtual performances, reduced capacity, socially-distanced in-person opportunities when the time is right, and exclusive tours of the new Bradley Symphony Center for our loyal subscribers and donors. » Details are yet to be announced.
