Pictures of Sound – the Theme for RSO’s 91st Season

The Racine Symphony Orchestra (RSO) was originally created by our founder, Fredrick Schulte, in 1932. The RSO exists to ENRICH, EDUCATE and ENTERTAIN our communities through the power of music. This season, we are proud to carry on our rich tradition by offering yet another terrific roster of musical performances to our community!

We start with the Lakeside Pops series featuring Stas Venglevski performing tangos and other works in June, and in August jazz vocalist Corynn Latta in a program of big band music. We then move into autumn with our Artist-in-Residence trumpet virtuoso Jean Laurenz performing in our Fall Masterworks concert. The Holiday Pops will once again welcome back Racine’s high school choirs to help us celebrate the holidays with magical holiday music and sing-a-long’s.

After the new year, Racine Symphony Orchestra focuses on area youths with our Young Artist Competition and educational concerts catering to fifth graders. Our final two Masterworks concerts have Pasquale choosing a deeply significant work to perform on Good Friday, Haydn’s The Seven Last Words of Christ and violin virtuoso Jennifer Frautschi being featured in our spectacular May finale. We’re also excited for the return of our Musical Flights Series including short performances by some of the RSO’s musicians along with wine tastings and casual chamber music at downtown Racine’s Uncorkt!
