Phil the Gap!

Phil the Gap!

A Virtual Fundraising Event:

July 12th-26th

Covid-19 has cut our 2019-2020 concert season short, losing our last subscription  concert of the season, annual Gala (our biggest fundraiser of the year), Masterworks Chamber Music Festival, Shining Stars recital and numerous education & outreach performances . By losing these crucial events, we have lost a substantial amount of income and gained a large gap in funds. Phil the Gap! is  a  two week long, virtual fundraising event to benefit the Wisconsin Philharmonic. Enjoy daily performances by our musicians – live from their homes, online silent auction, videos from Alexander Platt, and more one of a kind virtual events. This fundraiser is about celebrating your local orchestra, our incredible roster of musicians – many that have lost all work for the foreseeable future, and ensuring that the Wisconsin Philharmonic remains a vital part of our community during these uncertain times. All proceeds raised will fund the future of our orchestra so we can come back stronger than ever, when it is safe for performances to resume.
