GREEN BAY, Wisconsin (WFRV) – The Brown County Civic Music Association, a region’s performing arts organization, sent out a Spring 2022 brochure to patrons outlining a timeline.

The group continues its plan to offer a subscription series of three concerts.

Under the headline “Cautious Optimism,” a statement in the brochure reads, “Like other presenters in these unusual times, we will continue to monitor developments in public health and advise you in advance of seating options. social distancing, general precautions, and schedule adjustments, if warranted.

Civic Music began 94 years ago as a voluntary arts presentation organization. Emphasis was placed on bringing excellent professional interpreters to Green Bay, often from overseas.

On the program are:

+ Gilbert and Sullivan Players’ New York production of “The Pirates of Penzance”. The light opera entirely staged by Gilbert and Sullivan is scored for the Weidner Center of the Performing Arts at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, March 14, 2022.

+ The Alliance Brass Quintet is scheduled to perform at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday April 9, 2022 at the Cup O Joy Auditorium, 525 N. Taylor St., Green Bay. The quintet ranges from Renaissance music to jazz. This is the first time that Civic Music has participated in Cup O Joy.
