Festival City Symphony Virtual Food Drive
Join Festival City Symphony to support Hunger Task Force during the holiday season! Festival City Symphony has been an important member of the Milwaukee-area arts community for nearly 100 years. Formerly known as the Milwaukee Civic Symphony Orchestra, Festival City Symphony is Milwaukee’s oldest performing symphony orchestra. Its mission is to extend the reach of classical music in the Milwaukee-area community by presenting free and affordable concerts in formats that embrace people of all ages.
The Virtual Food Drive is crucial to supplying tens of thousands in the Milwaukee community with the holidays’ most important necessity — healthy food. Fill up your cart with turkeys and healthy food items with the click of a button. Let’s join together to raise lots of food for hungry families in Milwaukee this holiday season!
Festival City Symphony will also be collecting healthy food donations at its “Holiday Songs & Dances” Pajama Jamboree concert on Wednesday, December 6, 2023 at 7pm in the Bradley Pavilion of the Marcus Performing Arts Center. This year will feature old standards and traditional favorites that highlight the sounds of the winter season. This hour-long, kid-friendly performance will include Leroy Anderson’s Sleigh Ride, Lucas Richman’s Hanukkah Festival Overture and end with Anderson’s A Christmas Festival sing-along.
Admission is FREE, and no reservations are required – healthy food donations for Hunger Task Force encouraged! Doors open at 6:30pm.
Geared towards children and their families, Festival City Symphony’s Pajama Jamboree concerts include narration to educate children about the music and instruments of the orchestra. Casual dress is encouraged, including pajamas, teddy bears, and blankets. Pajama Jamborees are best suited for children in K4 through fifth grade, but they are fun for young and not-so-young audience members alike!
