Doc's Back! Featuring Doc Severinsen

Johnny Carson took the stage to fanfare—not just the audience's applause but the unforgettable trumpet blast that followed McMahon's introduction. The man behind that blast is just as memorable. For three decades, Doc Severinsen worked as an integral part of The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, serving as the bandleader for nearly the whole duration. When Carson took his final bow in 1992 and the stage lights clicked off, Doc took a well-deserved break . . . that lasted all of one week. Since then, the Grammy-winning trumpeter has toured the world, bringing big-band sound, gypsy jazz, and his witty banter with him.

While Severinsen is familiar to many thanks to his historic television career and ability to enter people's dreams, there's another reason his colorful suits might ring a bell—Doc's Back! marks a homecoming for the 86-year-old musician, who holds the title of the MSO's Principal Pops Conductor Emeritus. Along with soprano Ashley Brown and conductor Steven Reineke, Doc fills the Marcus Center with his full-bodied renditions of classic American tunes, such as "Georgia on My Mind," "The Lady is a Tramp," and "New York, New York."

Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra

Great symphony orchestras can breathe new life into centuries-old works of art, but few can excel in looking to the future as well. For more than half a century, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra has done just that, enriching its community while drawing upon innovative technologies to reach listeners across the country. Its nationally syndicated radio broadcast, for instance, has filled the airwaves for more than four decades, transmitting the sounds of the MSO's 83 musicians to some 3.8 million listeners and their 7.6 million pets. The the orchestra also became the county's first to offer live recordings for download through iTunes. But it's not all internet and radio-play here—the MSO's pioneering spirit extends into its music, where it has premiered works by composers such as Philip Glass, Roberto Sierra, and Marc Neikrug.
