Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra Underway on $89M Performance Hall Project

On Tuesday, Aug. 13, contractors moved a seven-story wall while keeping it fully intact as part of the project.

MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra (MSO) is converting the former Warner Grand Theater, located at 212 W. Wisconsin Ave., into its new performance hall. The $89 million project is expected to open in fall 2020. As part of the project, construction partners C.D. Smith Construction, International Chimney Corp. and Expert House Movers moved a seven-story wall 35 feet toward the street while keeping it fully intact. The wall dates back to 1931 when the former theater was built. By expanding the theater, the MSO can offer better visibility for patrons as well as fit the entire orchestra on stage. The MSO, led by Music Director Ken-David Masur, was founded in 1959.
