There has been a change of venue for this performance, which will no longer be held at the Overture Center. Instead, the celebration, entitled, Music Education: a Community Opus will be held at Mills Concert Hall on the UW-Madison Campus. The event time and date will remain the same, March 7, 2009 at 7 pm.
We are still collecting memories and stories from Mr. Buchhauser's former students so that information can remain in the post.
We also wanted to add that there will be a reception after the concert and all alumni of Mr. Buchhauser's orchestras are invited to join us free of charge for both the reception and the concert.
We hope it will be a memorable celebration for a man who has touched the lives of so many young musicians.
If you played in Mr. Buchhauser's orchestras during his 33 years at Madison Memorial, the Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestras (WYSO) need your help. WYSO is planning a special event titled Music Education: a Community Opus, to honor Mr. Buchhauser for his wonderful dedication to music education in our community. The event is scheduled for March 7, 2009 at The Overture Center for the Arts' Capitol Theater in Madison and will feature WYSO's Philharmonic Orchestra in concert under the direction of Mr. Buchhauser. Stories and memories from his former students will be part of the concert. In order to make this event a success, WYSO needs contact information and memoir submissions from Memorial H.S. alums who were in Mr. Buchhauser's Orchestras. Please send your name, contact information, graduation year, instrument(s) played, and any memories or photos of Mr. Buchhauser to firstname.lastname@example.org or to 1625 Humanities Bldg., 455 N. Park St., Madison, WI 53706. You can also reach WYSO by phone at 608.263.3320.
