Founded in 1960, the WCO is dedicated to advancing Wisconsin communities through the transformative power of music. Under the direction of Maestro Andrew Sewell, the WCO leverages the unique characteristics of chamber music to bring a wide variety of repertoire to audiences in settings that range from the formality of the concert hall to the intimacy of smaller community venues and the open accessibility of parks and other public spaces.

Our core artistic programming is comprised of a five-concert Masterworks series at Madison’s Overture Center for the Arts, performances at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center in Brookfield, Wisconsin, holiday performances of Handel’s Messiah, and the highly popular summer series Concerts on the Square on Madison’s Capitol Square. Together, these performances reach more than 250,000 people and strengthen the state’s creative economy. No other organization in Wisconsin performs free of charge for more people.
