Green Bay Youth Symphony Moving Operations to St. Norbert College

From St. Norbert College, January 27, 2015

St. Norbert College and the Green Bay Symphony Orchestra are pleased to announce that Green Bay's Youth Symphony will commence operations at St. Norbert College beginning June 1, 2015.

The Youth Symphony of St. Norbert College will continue a long-standing tradition of providing excellent music education and performance opportunities to the area's young people.

The disbanding of the Green Bay Symphony, which will occur this spring, caused the youth symphony to look for a new home. "We are delighted that St. Norbert College has stepped forward to offer their facilities, resources and expertise," said Audrey Nowak, program director of the Youth Symphony.

Added St. Norbert College President Thomas Kunkel: "The college is very happy to be able to ensure the continuation of the Youth Symphony's arts engagement and education. This popular and worthwhile program fits very well with St. Norbert College's mission of outreach to the wider community."

Since 1967 the Green Bay Symphony Orchestra has operated a highly successful youth orchestra program. For nearly half a century this program has educated and graduated young musicians, many of whom have gone on to careers in the music field. Their farewell performance at the Weidner Center is scheduled for March 15 at 4 p.m.

Area youth ages 8 to 21 who are interested in joining the Youth Symphony of St. Norbert College can contact Ms. Audrey Nowak at audrey.nowak@snc.edu. For more information on the symphony's move to St. Norbert College, contact Amy Sorenson at amy.sorenson@snc.edu or 920-403-3165.
