Give Chance A Piece

Thursday, February 22 – Saturday, February 24, 2018

Among the beer and twinkle lights of The Pitch Project, the exquisite art collection of a private home, or the gracious warmth of the Woman’s Club, the concert experience will be inspired by “Give Chance a Piece”, changeable music that is altered by a roll of the dice.

Wander with us as Present Music returns to the Lynden Sculpture Garden with a new concert shaped in sound for the sight of the garden collection of more than 50 monumental sculptures in 40 acres of park, lake and woodland.

The Experience!

Present Music has become a leader in contemporary “serious music,” racing many miles ahead of the musty… avant-garde by making thorny new music fun.

Dave Luhrssen

Shepherd Express

You don’t usually see robots and amplifiers at the symphony; nor are the composers usually present in the room to literally breathe life into their new orchestral arrangements.

Cara Slingerland

Marquette Tribune

America’s most important new-music ensemble might well be Milwaukee’s own Present Music.

Tom Strini

Third Coast Digest

“The burst of energy from the musicians sent chills up and down my spine (the good chills). When music actually gives your body an uncontrolled physical reaction like that, you know you have witnessed something special. It was a great experience.”

Jesse V.
