Concerts on the Square season debut postponed- again
MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - The first Concerts on the Square performance of the year is postponed again due to weather concerns.
Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra revealed Wednesday morning that the show would be held off due to scattered showers and thunderstorms expected between noon and 8 p.m. Wednesday. The show will instead be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday.
What was supposed to be the first show of the year last week was delayed over poor air quality. “¡Viva Tiempo Libre!” will be rescheduled for a later date, which has not been announced yet.
Concerts on the Square is celebrating its 40th season. Thursday’s performance of “Contrastes” will recognize Independence Day through familiar tunes, including “The Stars and Stripes Forever” and “Armed Forces Salute.”
Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra noted Virtuoso trombonist Joël Vaïsse will be featured in the performance. This year’s Young Artist Concerto Competition winner Clark Snavely will also play the violin as a guest soloist.
Those wishing to listen to “Contrastes” Thursday should gather on the King Street corner of Capitol Square. The concert is free and open to the public.
