ASHWAUBENON, WI (WFRV) – A unique event is coming to Lambeau Field’s Atrium in November that combines Green Bay’s love of football and its appreciation of the fine arts.
Musicians will fill the atrium for an evening of dancing while the symphony plays all your favorite dances from waltz to swing to polka.
This is the first time ever the orchestra has hosted a concert like this.
“We usually do concerts in a hall on a stage with the audience,” explained Seong-Kyung Graham, Music Director of the Civic Symphony of Green Bay. “But we’re trying to break the barrier between audience and performance.”
Depending on the ticket you purchase you can also throw in a buffet dinner and tour of Lambeau.
Before the concert, there will be dance lessons from Green Bay Ballroom instructors just in case you want to give it a whirl.
Members of the orchestra say they’re excited about this opportunity to play in an iconic setting while expanding people’s perceptions about all Green Bay has to offer.
“The atrium is such a large, majestic space, I think it’s going to be fun to be part of that culture we have here in the city,” remarked Dan Marbes who is the Board of Directors President.
Organizers say the best part is you can customize your experience depending on much time you want to spend and how much you want to fit into one evening.
Prices start at $35 for a concert ticket.
