The Weidner Center for the Performing Arts is heading to the Green Bay Botanical Garden to bring Weidner Philharmonic back to the stage as its members perform “Walton’s Façade: An Entertainment” on Sunday, May 23, 2021 at 3 p.m. in the Billie Kress Amphitheatre.

“Walton’s Facade: An Entertainment” is an exciting series of poems by Edith Sitwell (1887-1964), accompanied by instrumentals composed by William Walton (1902-1983). Despite being highly controversial for its absurdist avant-garde nature upon its debut in 1922, Walton’s Façade: An Entertainment survived its notoriety to become an essential tongue in cheek classic.
