ENRICH. EDUCATE. ENTERTAIN.
Celebrating 90 Years!
For over 90 years, generations of people have been instrumental (pun intended) in making music in our community. Our founder, Fredrick Schulte, began the Racine Symphony Orchestra in 1932. This season, we are proud to have a variety of events to connect with our audience! We start with the Summer Pops series. After that, we move into fall with our Artist-in-Residence and a Masterworks concert. Then we celebrate the holidays together with our ever popular Holiday Pops. In the spring, we have our Young Artist Competition and the Concert for Elementary Students. We finish the season celebrating the Young Artist Competition winner along with our Side-by-side Youth Invitational at our Spring Masterworks Concert.
Our 90th Season will also include a 90th Anniversary concert in May 2022. We also have a variety of Musical Flights; small gatherings with a short performance by some of the RSO’s musicians along with some wine!
The RSO’s Pops Concerts, Masterworks Concerts and the wide variety of music education programs are our driving force. The RSO exists to ENRICH, EDUCATE and ENTERTAIN our communities through the power of music. With you and your support, we plan to be around for many more years.
We’re Going Live!
Thank you for supporting us during a very unique and challenging 2020-2021 season. Your donations allowed us to create a variety of online concerts. As a result, we were able to provide activity throughout the season that everyone could enjoy! The RSO is thrilled to produce live concerts again, and we’ll continue to monitor the situation with the pandemic and take precautionary measures as necessary. Please see each event for more information. We have several opportunities to join us and help us celebrate our 90th Season!
