History[edit]

CWSO began in 1947 when it grew out of the music classes of Peter Michelsen, instructor at Central State Teachers' College (now University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point). The Orchestra has gone through several name changes during its history. Originally known as Central State Symphony Orchestra, in 1953 it became the Stevens Point Symphony. In 1977 the name changed to Central Wisconsin Symphony Orchestra.
