One of the most beautiful moments in film music - "Mickey" from Rocky III by Bill Conti.
Conti captured the anguish of loss, the reflection of mourning and a glimmer of hope all in a few minutes of music.
This is for those who have lost loved ones.

An update from our Board President...

Hello, Civic Music friends and subscribers,

We are making good progress in resolving cancellation and rescheduling issues with the spring portion of Civic Music's current concert season. Here's the latest:

March 14, Maxwell Street Klezmer Band (previously postponed) -- We are working with the group in hopes of rescheduling as a summertime special... likely at a venue with outdoor/indoor options... as early as June (unlikely) but perhaps the second half of August as a fun "pre-season" warm-up for our regularly scheduled fall lineup. Public health permitting, of course.

April 18, Washington Saxophone Quartet (newly postponed) -- We agreed late last week to cancel and, in doing so, found a nice silver lining if we postpone all the way to December. The quartet offers a very popular holiday show that would be a nice bonus, a warm and wonderful way to welcome the season and put a long year behind us. If we can navigate a crowded holiday calendar to find a good date, we're in for a treat.

May 7, Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra (it's complicated) -- We're still holding the date, at the MSO's request, but our original venue, the Weidner Center, is not. Basically, it’s just two different approaches to a complicated set of circumstances. The state-owned Weidner Center is following directives to halt all programming through mid-May. The MSO, a private arts organization, has announced no cancellations beyond April, in case there is a quick resolution to the worst of the coronavirus threat. They hope to salvage at least part of their spring season. Civic Music? We'll wait and see. If perspectives suddenly change on large concerts and gatherings, and a true “all-clear” emerges, we’d simply have to rebook the Weidner or another hall for the originally scheduled date. Much more likely, at this point, would be a late summer or fall date, and it won’t be easy, given the MSO’s busy fixed calendar at their home hall. The Milwaukee Symphony loves playing Green Bay (especially the Weidner! ) in what has become a cornerstone of our annual series. They very much want to resume performances across the state and start selling tickets again. They are Wisconsin’s premier cultural institution, and in my view Civic Music should do all we can to support them.

I hope to have a definitive answer on the MSO, and perhaps the two other re-bookings within about two weeks. And, although the announcement is delayed, we expect to start advertising next season’s new five-concert series later this spring. (It’s another great lineup!) Thank you for your support of Civic Music. Stay healthy, and please don't hesitate to contact me with comments and suggestions,

Christopher Sampson
Board President, Brown County Civic Music Association

WATCH: In Isolation, But In Unison, The Colorado Symphony Performs ‘Ode To Joy’

"It's tough to perform or rehearse as a group when you're practicing social distancing. But the Colorado Symphony managed to do just that -- dropping an epic cut of their musicians performing Beethoven's "Ode To Joy" from various locations."

Cantus

Cantus presents...

Enjoy the first installment from Cantus’ COVID-19 Sessions recorded live on March 17, 19, and 20.

"This is my song, O God of all the nations,
a song of peace for lands afar and mine.
This is my home, the country where my heart is;
here are my hopes, my dreams, my holy shrine;
but other hearts in other lands are beating
with hopes and dreams as true and high as mine."

We couldn’t think of a more meaningful piece to kick off our online performance series during this time of isolation and uncertainty. We have been performing this song since nearly the ensemble’s beginning some 25 years ago, and we hope it reminds you that you are not alone. We are in this together.

We are working with Maxwell Klezmer to re-book them, perhaps for summer. The same with our April 18 attraction, the Washington Saxophone Quartet, which is also likely to be affected. Whether this summer or even into the fall, it is Civic Music's intention to bring these performers to Green Bay to fulfill the series we promised. We will keep you posted.

Thank you, stay healthy, and please don't hesitate to contact our office with comments and suggestions.
