We need you! Sign up.
The Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra is overjoyed to perform together again this summer for you, Madison! Our perennial classical concert series springs up this rare summer at Breese Stevens Field instead of our home on the Capitol Square.
Five concerts will be performed on Wednesday evenings at 7 PM from July 7 - August 4 to a live audience of 5,000. All concerts will be live-streamed for free.
Gates open at 5:30 PM. Concerts begin at 7 PM.
Reserving your seat this summer helps maintain a safe audience size at Breese Stevens Field. All funds raised by ticket sales will support the wages for our WCO musicians.
General Admission Bleacher Seat: $5
FREE for Children 12 and Under
No spacing restrictions required in bleacher seating.
Reserved Seats: $5
No spacing restrictions required in reserved barstool seating.
Blanket Pods for up to 6 people: $50
Blanket Pods are approximately 8’ x 8’ spaced 6’ apart.
Space is limited! 100 Blanket Pods reserved per concert.
Bring your blanket and 1 lawn chair per person.
All tickets for general seating, reserved seating and blanket pods will be mobile-only as a standard practice by our event venue partner. See the mobile ticket example here. No printed tickets will be produced. Tickets are not refundable and cannot be exchanged. We do encourage you to share your tickets with a friend if you are unable to attend a performance.
Tickets can be purchased day-of-performance at the Breese Stevens Field box office, open Wednesdays (or Thursdays, if we have a rain call) at 4:30 PM.
Blankets and one lawn chair per person are welcomed for blanket pod patrons. Blankets and all lawn chairs must be kept within your pod at all times.
No carry-in food or beverage allowed at Concerts on the Square this year. Instead, Breese Stevens Field will have picnic sandwiches, sides and drink options available for purchase.
All five Concerts on the Square performances will be live-streamed on wcoconcerts.org, free for everyone to enjoy.
The decision to continue or cancel a concert due to weather conditions will be made at 3 PM on concert days. The official announcement will be made on wcoconcerts.org and on the WCO’s Facebook and Instagram pages. Email will also be sent to WCO subscribers. If the concert is postponed at that time, it will be held the following day at 7 PM. If the concert is not postponed by 3 PM but is subsequently canceled due to poor weather conditions, that week’s concert will not be held or may be cut short. Tickets are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged.
Masking is strongly encouraged, especially for those not fully vaccinated. Masks should be worn until patrons get to their seats. Socially-distanced blanket pod seating and patron tables on the field will remain 6’ apart to offer audience members a safe-distancing option as the community returns to live music experiences.
