Founded in 1960, the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra (WCO) is one of the elite chamber ensembles in the United States and is dedicated to advancing Wisconsin communities through the transformative power of music. Under the direction of Maestro Andrew Sewell, the WCO leverages the unique characteristics of chamber music to bring a wide variety of repertoire to audiences in settings that range from the formality of the concert hall to the intimacy of smaller community venues and the open accessibility of parks and other public spaces. Through collaborations with regional performing arts groups and touring performances, the WCO extends its artistic programming to broader audiences and communities across Dane, Columbia, Jefferson, Waukesha, and Sauk counties.
The WCO is nationally known for its summer series Concerts on the Square®, drawing over 200,000 patrons annually to downtown Madison. Via its annual education programs including the Family Series, Young Artist Concerto Competition, and Super Strings program, the WCO provides artistic development opportunities for young musicians.
