Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra




Since its founding in 1959, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra (MSO) has continued to be one of the country’s most artistically vibrant and innovative orchestras. This tradition has been enjoyed by millions nationwide since 1971 with the MSO’s radio series – the country’s longest-running national classical radio series. The MSO’s full-time, professional, virtuosic musicians excite listeners with over 140 live concerts across Wisconsin each season. A selection of these are featured on the orchestra’s broadcasts, which feature exclusive behind the scenes and backstage musician commentary.


Host - Lori Skelton

Lori Skelton has been heard on Wisconsin Public Radio since 1993; while she is primarily a host on the Music Network, she has also helmed call-in programs on the Ideas Network, on topics ranging from battling depression to the best way to cook a curry. Before WPR, she could be heard on Milwaukee’s former classical music station, WFMR. In her spare time, she sings in the Milwaukee Symphony Chorus, and is an avid fan of live theater and wine tasting.
