Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra Announces Exact Sciences as Exclusive Sponsor of 2015 Concerts on the Square

MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra (WCO) today announced that Exact Sciences Corp. will be the exclusive sponsor of the 2015 season of Concerts on the Square.

"This partnership between a company that's committed to Madison and a great Madison tradition is truly a gift to our community," said the WCO's Executive Director Mark Cantrell. "On Wednesday evenings throughout the summer 180,000 people come together for Concerts on the Square. The support of Exact Sciences will only enhance their experience this season."

Cantrell pointed out that the support of Exact Sciences - the manufacturer of Cologuard, the only FDA-approved, non-invasive colon cancer screening test - will help expand the community's understanding for the importance of advanced cancer screening.

"Madison summers are unique because of community gatherings like Concerts on the Square," said Kevin Conroy, chairman and CEO of Exact Sciences. "Exact Sciences is committed to our hometown and ensuring that all of the things that make Madison a great place to work and live are here for everyone to enjoy. As we continue to grow as a company, we recognize that our success is only as strong as the community we share."
