25 years with John DeMain

25 years
with John DeMain

It Has Been a Transformation…

A new sound from the orchestra. A new approach to concert programs. A new personality in the community. And, of course, a new concert hall. Fulfillment, in fact, of the dreams our community has cherished for its symphony orchestra.

The New York Times, in likening ours to the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, praised John as a builder of orchestras. And, so he is. Since 1994, the promise of the new era has blossomed into one of the most exciting symphony stories in America. At the helm, John DeMain has brought the Madison Symphony Orchestra into the 21st Century as what has been called “a shining example of what’s right with symphony orchestras.”

So, this is the season to celebrate 25 Years of Great Music with John DeMain. Trust your ears. You’ve got to hear it to believe it. Join as we commemorate a season as momentous as the milestone it celebrates.
