Holiday Pops Concert
The MSO Holiday Pops Concert is held in early December in the West Bend High Schools’ auditorium and is underwritten by local business, individuals, or foundations. All proceeds from ticket sales are used for COLUMNS Scholarships. The first benefit concert was underwritten by B.C. Ziegler and Company in 1971.
MSO Youth Concert
Each year the fourth and fifth graders of the public and parochial schools in West Bend are given the opportunity to attend the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra’s Youth Concert held at the West Bend High Schools’ auditorium. This has always been a rewarding experience for the children. The MSO will continue to entertain the fourth and fifth graders for years to come through the generosity of the Schlegel Foundation.
