Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

The Racine Symphony Orchestra (RSO) is thrilled to receive a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Arts’ Challenge America program in support of our 2020 fall programming. Specifically, this grant will support two concerts with our 2020 Artist-in-Residence, Joshua Zajac on November 7. Mr. Zajac is a cellist with strong ties to the Chicago area and an eclectic musical background.

The first concert will be a Masterworks Concert at UW-Parkside’s Bedford Concert Hall. The second concert will be a FREE, less formal event held at Knapp Elementary School. While courteous children are welcome at all of our concerts, the concert at Knapp Elementary is designed with families in mind. Please keep an eye out for more detailed information.

For more information on the Racine Symphony Orchestra’s special events, music education programs and concerts, and to purchase tickets, please visit or call 262-636-9285. Tickets to our 2020-21 Season will be available for purchase this spring.

The Racine Symphony Orchestra’s concerts and educational programs are made possible by the generous support of The Racine Community Foundation, SC Johnson, The United Performing Arts Fund (UPAF,) The National Endowment for the Arts, Johnson Financial Group, Educators Credit Union, Marjorie Christiansen Foundation, The Wisconsin Arts Board and our patrons and donors.
