Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra is Home for the Holidays
GREEN BAY, Wis. (December 23, 2021) – Jones Architectural Creations and Jones Sign Company celebrate its 2021 custom venue work that brings music this holiday season at the new home of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, the Bradley Symphony Center. The work was a collaborative effort with other Wisconsin-based companies, C.D. Smith Construction, and the architect of record, Kahler Slater,.
“Thanks to the stunning designs created by Kahler Slater, we were able to be part of a truly special and historic remodel of the Warner Grand Theatre,” said Todd Patrickus, Executive Vice President of Jones Sign. “Our work included signage, donor walls, music profiles, posters, and exquisite historic exhibits,” shared Patrickus.
Jones Architectural Creations and Jones Sign worked with the general contractor, C.D. Smith Construction and Kahler Slater, to preserve the historic elements of the Warner Grand Theatre and create new elements that enrich and engage the community in the musical experience. The Warner Grand Theatre was once an opulent movie palace. The Great Depression meant difficult times for 1930s’ Milwaukee, and this affordable but luxurious space was a place where people could escape from their daily lives. The Warner Grand Theatre was originally designed according to an architectural vision of providing what most ordinary Milwaukee citizens in the 1930’s would think of as fancy.
The newly remodeled Bradley Symphony Center opened in October of this year and is located at 212 West Washington Street in downtown Milwaukee.
