The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra (MSO) is an orchestra based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Its primary performing venue is the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts. Founded in 1959, the MSO presents more than 150 Classics, Classical Connections, Pops, and family concerts annually for more than 200,000 people during a season that starts in early September and continues through the end of June. From 1997 to 2009, the MSO's music director was Andreas Delfs. He stepped down from this position in June 2009 and became the MSO's conductor laureate. Delfs' successor is former San Francisco Symphony and Minnesota Orchestra music director and current Hong Kong Philharmonic chief conductor and artistic director Edo de Waart. Maestro de Waart was named to the position on January 3, 2008. Marvin Hamlisch is the MSO's current principal Pops conductor. He was named to the post on November 16, 2007, replacing the retired Doc Severinsen, who holds the title of principal Pops conductor emeritus. Stuart Chafetz became the MSO's resident conductor in July 2007. - Source: Wikipedia
