Imagine Sentry Theater filled to the brim with 4th graders from all around Central Wisconsin. They are riveted as they hear a live performance of music from around the world. They are laughing, smiling, playing/singing along, and dancing! This happens each and every year and is all possible because of the life of an extraordinary music educator, Dorothy Vetter (Dorothy Vetter Bio).
Every year, almost 2,000 4th graders from the counties of Marathon, Portage, Waupaca, Waushara, Wood & Shawano fill the Theater @1800 to experience the magic and wonder of the CWSO. They learn about the orchestra, about music, they play along on their recorders or sing, but most importantly … they hear amazing music and they LOVE IT! (So does the orchestra).
