Lombardi's Field print

'Lombardi's Field' print by Carolyn Barnard

Carolyn Barnard, well-known local artist, gifted Civic Music with prints of her watercolor painting, “Lombardi’s Field”. With the goal of financing a video production of our illustrious history, Civic Music is selling these prints for $55. (They sell for $100 in local galleries and gift shops.) The unframed prints can be purchased at the table in the lobby at the first concert or through our website. Thanks to the generosity of Wildwood Galleries Ltd., a framed print is on display.

Donation Appreciation

Sunday, September 26th, 2010

Civic Music extends a sincere thanks to our many members and friends from the community who provide financial contributions, over and above the ticket price, to express their appreciation for the outstanding performances we bring to the local stage. We are a unique organization with a long tradition of serving you, our classical music enthusiasts, with live performances from around the world.  As we face escalating costs associated with bringing you the quality performances to which you have become accustomed, please consider making a tax deductible donation to Civic Music to keep our tradition alive.

Many of our members are fans of Wisconsin Public Radio. A small tax-deductible gift to Civic Music, designated for WPR announcements, will benefit both Civic Music and Public Radio.

Wheelchair assistance…

Sunday, September 26th, 2010

Thanks to the students from the West High Octagon Club, wheelchair assistance will again be available at both the west entrance and the cafeteria entrance.  Entering the building from the west parking lot is more efficient, has more disabled parking spaces, and parking is nearer to the door.
