Saxophonist Steve Lehman joins Present Music in Milwaukee’s Fifth Ward for the last concert of the 2016-17 season. Lines blur, genres disappear, and music is born on the spot as Lehman and composer/pianist Cory Smythe embark on an improvisational adventure, including the premiere of a new composition by Smythe and music by jazz legend Ornette Coleman. BOUNDARIES is part chamber concert, part nightclub, and part musical chemistry lab.
