A night of awfully good music for a really good cause.

March, 2022

Perry Hall | UW Oshkosh, Fox Cities

Prepare your ears.

The first-ever Fox Valley Sinfonia concert took place on March 11, 2015, when a group of 50 extraordinary people in the Fox Cities came together for a unique musical experience. The entrance requirement? Learn an instrument they had never played before.

Five lessons with a professional instructor and four full-orchestra rehearsals later, they were on stage in concert – making more music than one could ever imagine! Most importantly, they raised funds for the real Fox Valley Symphony Orchestra and its Youth Programs.

Now an annual tradition, Fox Valley Sinfonia has raised more than $150,000 in its first six years. Join us for Fox Valley Sinfonia in March of 2022 (see details below). You won’t believe your ears!

Plans for 2022

If 2021 would have been a normal year, more than 60 Sinfoniacs would have been selected for the 7th annual Fox Valley Sinfonia in March, and:

  • Sounds of practicing a new instrument would have been “music to the ears” of the humans and pets in their households.
  • Maestro Craig Kellenberger would have been wondering why he ever signed up for yet another year.
  • Friends and relatives of those Sinfoniacs would have donated thousands of dollars to honor their favorite Sinfoniac… or maybe to get them to stop playing.

But it wasn’t a normal year!

So now, we’re moving full speed ahead with the next Fox Valley Sinfonia in March of 2022. And we invite you to be part of it!

What’s in it for you?

  • Free lessons from a professional musician on a brand-new-to-you musical instrument.
  • The chance to “wow” family and friends (or make a fool of yourself in good fun . . . depending on your practice regimen).
  • A new entry for your resume or LinkedIn profile.
  • A unique networking opportunity to work together and make new friends.
  • The chance to be “instrumental” in supporting the Fox Valley Symphony’s artistic and educational mission.
