Our world-class Overture Concert Organ was built with exquisite old-world craftsmanship, designed to last several lifetimes. Help us preserve this legacy by joining Friends of the Overture Concert Organ. To join, please click here to sign up online or contact Jeff Breisach at (608) 257-3734 or JBreisach@madisonsymphony.org.
Friends of the Overture Concert Organ promote events featuring the Madison Symphony Orchestra's Overture Concert Organ and serve as ambassadors for an expanding program of outreach and education events. Friends help sustain the maintenance, tuning and concert production of the Overture Concert Organ. They also support lectures, organ demonstrations, master classes and other outreach events that increase awareness and appreciation of this great instrument both regionally and nationally.
Contributions make it possible for the Madison Symphony Orchestra to produce organ recitals, hymn sings, Friends University events, and to tune and maintain the treasured Klais Organ.
