The Season’s first big weekend
Don’t tell me you’ve got nothing to do.
The Prometheus Trio — violinist Timothy Klabunde, cellist Scott Tisdel and pianist Stefanie Jacob — will play music by Faure and Haydn, and Kirchner’s trio arrangement of Brahms Sextet in G. Will less be more? Starting time is 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 14, at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music, where the Prometheus resides. Details, links and map right here.
Look out; here come Gabriel Prokofiev and DJ Madhatter to Present Music‘s opener, 7:30 p.m. Saturday (Sept. 18) at Turner Hall, for Prokofiev’s Concerto for Turntable and Orchestra. Philip Bush, PM’s long-time pianist, which also be featured on the occasion of his final concert with the group. Lots more here.
Richard Hynson, conductor of the Milwaukee Chamber Orchestra and the Bel Canto Chorus, will get his two groups togther at 4 p.m. Sunday (Sept. 19) in Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater at Calvary Presbyterian Church Downtown for the MCO’s season opener. Also on the program: Stravinsky’s Pulcinella Suite (clever programming, as it’s based on music by Pergolesi) and John Tavener’s Cantus Mysticus. Click here for tickets and more. (Go on, click. You know you want to.)
The Milwaukee Rep‘s Cabaret, Mark Clements’ anxiously anticipated debut as artistic director, goes into previews tonight (Tuesday Sept. 14) and opens formally Friday. The choice is audacious, to say the least, as Clements’ first effort, as one of the Rep’s biggest shows, and as its first Powerhouse Theater musical. Interesting too is the choice of Michael Pink, the Milwaukee Ballet’s artistic director, as choreographer. Not to be missed. It runs through Oct. 24. Lots more here.
Everything old is new again in the Skylight Opera Theatre‘s Dames at Sea. Bill Theisen will direct the comedy, which is at once an homage to and a send-up of frothy 1930s musicals a la Busby Berkeley. Jim Wise, George Haihmson and Robin Miller created their spoof while looking back to the 1930s in 1966. Is it too soon for someone to now write a nostalgic spoof of the spoof? The show opens Friday (Sept. 17) at the Broadway Theatre Center, where it runs through Oct. 3. More here.
For the Kids: Festival City Symphony‘s Pajama Jamboree, 7 p.m. Wednesday (Sept. 15).
Visit the TCD events calendar often. It will help you keep up.
