The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra is the largest cultural institution in Wisconsin. And, as the MSO has found innovative and immersive ways to give music a home here, it has found a new sanctuary in the completely restored art deco architectural gem - the former Warner Grand Theater building. Adjoining this treasure, a welcoming, glassy, modern structure has been created. This space is the Pavilion at the Bradley Symphony Center, and it is the where of your next event.
Here to serve you with all the planning and provisions needed, the Resonance Food Co. presents elevated hospitality, set to music. We specialize in creating one-of-a-kind unforgettable events of all sizes and types that reflect your style. Customizable catering menus and custom floor plans offer the opportunity to personalize your occasion, from opening note to the final crescendo.
