THE WYSO CENTER FOR MUSIC
IMAGINE a new home for WYSO with room for all of WYSO’s current programs under a single roof, with state- of-the-art rehearsal spaces for orchestras and ensembles of all sizes, studio teaching spaces, admin offices, and a music library. With a location in a vibrant section of downtown Madison, WYSO can become a part of a growing youth arts community and a key collaborator to foster creativity and community events.
WYSO was established in 1966 by Professor Marvin Rabin of the University of Wisconsin-Extension. More than 5,000 young musicians from communities throughout southern Wisconsin have participated in WYSO during its 50+ years of existence. Under the artistic direction of Kyle Knox, WYSO includes orchestras, chamber groups, ensemble programs, and the WYSO Music Makers program.
