World Class Artists On A World Class Stage

With its core being comprised of recitals and chamber music, the annual Concert Series is the cornerstone of Wisconsin Union Theater’s presentations. Since its origination in 1920, almost every important concert artist and chamber ensemble that has toured the U.S. has appeared as a part of the Concert Series.

Naming just a few of the notable musicians who have performed would include Emanuel Ax, Joshua Bell, Hilary Hahn, Vladimir Horowitz, Olga Kern, Yo-Yo Ma, Garrick Ohlsson, Itzak Perlman, Artur Rubinstein, Andras Schiff, and Dawn Upshaw.

Join us as the tradition continues!
