“I am hitting my head against the walls, but the walls are giving way. --Gustav Mahler

Courage, it has been said, is not the absence of fear. In fact, it is action in the face of fear. Courage is the quality that allows each of us to follow our vision in battle, in love, to a new country, or sometimes even just into a new day – despite what may seem like insurmountable odds.

When we talk about courage, we inevitably talk about individuals. Courage is personal and often intensely private. At the same time, we are motivated by the courage of others. We share songs and stories of bravery as a way of reminding ourselves that walls do, eventually, give way. We each have the power within ourselves to make a difference – to be the change we want to see in the world.

Since 1975, the Concord Chamber Orchestra has been performing classical music for the enjoyment of Milwaukee-area audiences and offering performance opportunities for talented volunteer and student musicians. For forty-two years, we have existed because of the vision and individual contributions of hundreds of musicians, directors, volunteers, and donors.

Join us for our new season as we celebrate courage in its many forms. Connect with orchestra members and soloists during free receptions after our October, March, and May concerts. Support young artists with a donation to our Walter A. and Dorothy J. Oestreich Concerto Competition. Volunteer your time and talents. So often throughout history, creating art has been an act of courage. Your support helps us honor those acts.
