Weidner Philharmonic 2021-2022 Performance Series Announced

The Weidner Center for the Performing Arts is pleased announce concert dates for the Weidner Philharmonic's 2021-2022 performance series. Entering its third year, The Weidner Philharmonic at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay will welcome live audiences to the Weidner Center this fall with a classic symphony concert and a special gala celebrating the installation of Michael Alexander as UW-Green Bay's seventh Chancellor. Tickets go on sale Thursday, August 5, 2021 at 11:00 AM.

These concerts will be the Weidner Center's first in-person events in over a year. "It is hard to believe that it will have been almost 18 months since we've had a live audience at the Weidner Center. Our staff and the musicians have been working hard to make sure that we can bring artists and audiences together as safely as possible and offer the special connection of hearts and minds that happens during a live performance. I, for one, don't know that I will ever take that for granted again" says Kelli Strickland, Executive & Artistic Director of the Weidner Center.
