Symphony makes 100th year ‘notable’ in city’s downtown

In celebration of the l00thAnniversary of Wisconsin's oldest continuous orchestra the Sheboygan Symphony orchestra, Sheboygan Squared Business Improvement District and the City of Sheboygan collaborated on the placement of musical notes in street side downtown flower planters.

In February, the Sheboygan Symphony contacted City staff about ways to energize the streetscaping through creative placemaking to celebrate their 100th year in an area of North 8th Street near the Stefanie H. Weill Center for the performing Arts. The first idea of hanging banners off the light poles evolved into the creation of metal musical notes that would be installed above the flowers in the downtown planters.

“The Sheboygan Symphony is excited to celebrate our 100th year by partnering with the City and the downtown to create a sense of place downtown as we tell the story of the symphony” stated David Gallianetti, SSO board member and chair of the SSO centennial Planning committee.

Approximately 40 musical notes fabricated by students at Lakeshore Technical College with “Sheboygan Symphony 100 years” engraved in them were installed in flower planters along North 8th Street from Erie Avenue to Pennsylvania Avenue. Downtown flower pots are planted each year by the Town and Country Garden club.
