The mission of Festival City Symphony, the oldest performing symphony orchestra in Milwaukee, is to educate the community and extend the reach of classical music with reasonable pricing and informative formats that embrace people of all ages.
FCS showcases area professional musicians in its two concert series: Symphony Sundays—Classical Music for All Ages and Pajama Jamborees—Classical Pops Concerts for Children and Families. Each season, FCS performs four Symphony Sundays concerts on Sunday afternoons, plus three Pajama Jamborees on select Wednesday evenings.
Purchase individual tickets by calling the Pabst Theater Box Office at 414-286-3205 or visiting pabsttheater.org.
This season’s popular Halloween Pajama Jamboree will not only see the orchestra and audience in costume, but feature talented young local actor Chris Orth, appearing as the prolific Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. A graduate of Concordia University Wisconsin, Mr. Orth’s studies included performing in the musicals “Little Women,” “The Will Rogers’ Follies,” “Something’s Afoot”, and “Curtains.”
The featured guests of the annual Holiday Pajama Jamboree will be Homestead High School’s student vocal ensemble, under the direction of Kristin Hougy. They will join us in an evening of holiday tunes culminating in an audience sing along of seasonal favorites. FCS encourages attendees to bring a nonperishable food donation for Milwaukee’s HUNGER TASK FORCE.
