Kevin’s Last Season Opener


September 8, 2018
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Helene Zelazo Center for the Performing Arts


Join Kevin Stalheim in a collaboration with Guest Conductor David Bloom (of Contemporaneous fame) and the Present Music Ensemble for our Season Opener concert featuring a mix Present Music’s past hits and music new to Milwaukee’s ears. The concert will take the audience on a scintillating spin from Sinatra to Stravinsky, America’s Deep South to Africa, and to the waters of Turkey and Ireland.

Come hear what Kevin & David are cooking up for Present Music’s 2018-19 Season Opener!
