Milwaukee Symphony performing at Ripon College

Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra

The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, Wisconsin’s largest cultural organization, returns to Ripon College Sunday, Sept. 29, for its 41st appearance on campus as part of the Caestecker Fine Arts Series. The concert will begin at 3:15 p.m. in the J.M. Storzer Center.

Selections will include “Overture to Guillaume Tell (William Tell),” by Gioachino Rossini; Suite No. 1 from “Peer Gynt,” Opus 46, by Edvard Grieg; and Symphony No. 4 in F minor, Opus 36, by Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

The orchestra’s associate conductor, Francesco Lecce-Chong, will conduct. He is active with the orchestral and operatic repertories on the international stage. With the MSO, he is directly responsible for leading more than 40 subscription, tour, education and community concert performances annually. During the MSO’s 2012-13 season, Lecce-Chong took the podium for an acclaimed gala concert with Itzhak Perlman, led the orchestra through its statewide tour of Wisconsin, and conducted a special three-week series at Milwaukee’s Basilica of St. Josaphat.

Ticket prices are $15 for adults; $12 for senior citizens and Ripon College faculty and staff; $8 for students 18 and younger; and free for Ripon College students. For more ticket information, call Jean Hooker at (920) 748-8791.
