Washington Co., WI – During the 2019-20 season the Kettle Moraine Symphony is touring Washington County to take advantage of four of the six great performing arts facilities available in the county. A free bus for non-drivers will again be available for each concert.
· At this first concert on September 29, the Chamber Strings from West Bend High School, Seth Matuczak, orchestra director, will once again be performing side-by-side with KMS string players. In our ongoing effort to promote artistically powerful experiences for students we will demonstrate the joy intergenerational performing and expose more families to the joys of live performance and symphonic music.
· Violin virtuoso Jeanyi Kim, associate concertmaster of the Milwaukee Symphony, will appear as the soloist for Vivaldi’s “Autumn Concerto” from his The Four Seasons.
· Judge Andrew Gonring will perform as the narrator for Benjamin Britten’s A Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra
