Since 2006, the WCO has collaborated with Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestras' (WYSO) musicians in the Side by Side Project. The Side by Side Project launches with a day of rehearsals and mentoring activities.

Musicians from WCO and WYSO participate in two full orchestra rehearsals with Maestro Andrew Sewell and hold instrument-based sectional work with WCO musicians. The project culminates with an afternoon dress rehearsal, mentor dinner, and free-admission performance in Hamel Music Center for the community.
