“Audio Visual Delight - MSO in St. Josaphat Basillica”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

This concert was the main reason we came to Milwaukee. The MSO's Basillica series is a great deal and a truly uplifting experience. The creative program was thoughtfully chosen and very well performed by orchestra and chorus. The setting was truly amazing - a Baroque Style beautifully restored Basillica - complete with pink clouds, cherubs and plenty of gold leaf.

The $30 gallery seats were great acoustically and the view was fine from the 1st and 2nd row.

“This is not a "regional" orchestra. It's world-class by any measure.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

In its acoustically pleasing Uihlein Hall, this orchestra is way bigger than the size of the city it represents, thanks to a vibrant cadre of corporate and private sponsors who keep the quality high and the ticket prices reasonable.

I've often been reduced to tears by the sheer beauty of the MSO's performances. A few years ago a particularly stunning rendition of the Verdi Requiem with the MSO's chorus transformed the Hall into an oasis of inspiration and reverence.

“Musicianship galore!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

The MSO is a collection of incredible talent. I've seen Carmina Burana performed by the MSO and MSO Chorus and been extremely impressed. I do miss Andreas Delfs, but I think the MSO is really getting back into a musical rhythm again. I've never been disappointed in one of their performances.
