Registration for this event is now closed.
This season, the Madison Symphony Orchestra (MSO) is launching The Counterpoint Readings, a series in which poets will respond to a selected symphonic piece, culminating in a reading in Overture Center's Promenade Lounge the weekend the piece is performed. The first reading focuses on Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5, performed by the MSO at the Sunday, November 13, 2:30 p.m. concert, and will feature eight poets. Coordinated by MSO violist and poet Katrin Talbot, the series aims to expand the audience’s musical experience and bring Madison’s poetry into a new light.
Wine and cheese reception included.
