Stay On It


September 29, 2017
7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (River Level)


Party before the concert with our pool, ping pong and foosball challenge playoff as well as a cash bar starting at 6:30 pm.  Then join 300 friends, Guest Conductor David Bloom (of Contemporaneous fame) and the Present Music Ensemble for a mesmerizing concert featuring mezzo soprano Lucy Dhegrae. Urged by idiosyncratic minimalist composer, Julius Eastman, to “Stay On It”, the concert uses repetition as a loose theme.  Rain is gentle and beautiful in composer David Moore’s “ . . . and when it rained”. Harsh rain and the feeling, force, and aftermath of devastating floods inspires composer Christopher Trapani’s “Waterlines”.  Repetitive chants and steps comprise Meredith Monk’s “Panda Chant II”.  Finally, we count cows with Composer Tom John’s “narayana’s cows”.
