Both Frankly Music and Early Music Now have great concerts this coming week, and Urban Milwaukee has tickets we’d like to share with you. That’s right, if you’re an Urban Milwaukee member, you have a chance to attend these shows for free. It’s first come first served, so you could grab two tickets to more than one event. Two tickets to Frankly Music are worth $70 and two for Early Music are worth $58. This is a perfect opportunity for those who are avid chamber music goers, or even those who have never experienced live music quite like this before.

Urban Milwaukee is home to Milwaukee’s only news-site membership program, and we are offering a variety of tickets to new members. If you sign up to become a member, we’ll give you two tickets to an upcoming event of your choice, while our supplies last.

Want to know more about the events?

  • Early Music Now’s “For Two Lutes: Virtuoso Duets from Italy & England” features two of the world’s finest lute players performing an amazing program of stunning early music duets. They will “duel” on their instruments, trading passages back and forth with increasingly dazzling feats of virtuosity. For about two hours, with a 30-minute intermission, both Ronn McFarlane and Paul O’Dette will provide an unforgettable musical experience. On Saturday, March 16th (5 p.m.) at UW-Milwaukee Zelazo Center — We have are out of tickets to this show
  • Frankly Music’s “The Art of the Cello”: Támas Varga, Principal Cello of the Vienna Philharmonic, returns to Frankly Music. The program includes new works for solo cello by Aaron Jay Kernis, Akira Nishimura, Gregory Vajda, and chamber music of Brahms. Great music for all, and for Frankly Music fans, this is the second to last show of its season.
