Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist
A Milwaukee tradition, Present Music’s annual Thanksgiving concert will include a world premiere commission from Kamran Ince, our Hearing Voices vocal ensemble, the Reagan High School Choir and Homestead High School Choir, the Present Music Ensemble, and the Bucks Native American Singing and Drumming Group. Under the direction of artistic director Kevin Stalheim and in the resounding acoustics of the cathedral, the concert creates a unique and temporary community of listeners, who join in the performance in a closing Friendship Dance. Composer Ince will be present at the concert.
