Mark Niehaus

President, Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra 

He just kicked off a 3-year, $80M development project that will convert the 90-year-old Grand Theater into MSO's new home.  And this isn't the only change the MSO has embraced under Mark's 5-year tenure as president.

MSO's nationally buzzed about and (sometimes) controversial performances - like Pokemon Symphonic Evolution, the score of The Godfather, and the Music of David Bowie - are an edgy change for a respected institution embracing the modern day.  Join us as we get to know this musical prodigy, Julliard graduate and Harvard Alum in the beautiful space of 88.9 Radio Milwaukee.



Mark Niehaus became president and executive director of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra in 2012. He previously served as principal trumpet of the MSO beginning in 1998. As Chairman of the Orchestra’s Players’ Council, an active member of the MSO board, Niehaus brought knowledge of the industry, familiarity with MSO sponsors, ticketholders, and community, and a strong understanding of the organization’s long range plan.

Mr. Niehaus began his professional career at the age of 18, while still a freshman at The Juilliard School. He joined the faculty of The Juilliard School’s Pre-College division and was active in the Music Advancement Program. His studio was featured in a report on CBS’s 60 Minutes. Mr. Niehaus spent 12 summers at the Eastern Music Festival as principal trumpet of the faculty orchestra and spent summers at the Tanglewood Music Festival, National Repertory Orchestra, Pacific Music Festival, Spoleto USA, and Colorado Music Festival. He has been a featured lecturer and recitalist at the International Trumpet Guild Conference and also moderated and adjudicated the final rounds of the Orchestral and Solo competitions.

Before moving to Milwaukee, Mr. Niehaus spent three seasons as a member of the New World Symphony in Miami Beach, Florida with Artistic Director Michael Tilson Thomas. He may be heard on two RCA label recordings with the New World Symphony and Tilson Thomas: The Music of Villa Lobos and New World Jazz, on which he is a featured soloist. He returns to Miami regularly to teach and coach new generations of New World musicians. He has also served on the faculties of the North Carolina School of the Arts and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

In Milwaukee, Mr. Niehaus has been a featured soloist on several occasions, performing the Haydn Trumpet Concerto, Bach Cantata No. 51. The Arutunian Concerto and Bach’s Second Brandenburg Concerto. In the 2012.13 season, he was featured in the Shostakovich Piano Concerto No. 1 in C for piano and trumpet.

Mr. Niehaus lives in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin with his wife and two sons. He is proud to be the Scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 398 and serves on the Board of the Three Harbors Council where he advocates to remove all discriminatory policies.
