This Sunday on CW 14 Focus, host Robert Hornacek was joined by two guests to discuss the 100th anniversary of the Green Bay Symphony Orchestra.
Executive director Dan Linssen and timpanist Mike Ross appeared on the program. Ross, the director of bands at Appleton West High School, is also the conductor of the Youth Symphony.
Linssen and Ross spoke about the history of the Green Bay Symphony, its upcoming season and how the organization is trying to overcome some challenges.
Linssen says like many orchestras across the country, the Green Bay Symphony has been experiencing a decline in attendance over the last two decades. That's why he wants to change people's perceptions.
"It's not your father's symphony anymore," Linssen said. "It's a place where you can come and have a great night out and I think we'll see the Weidner Center full again."
