Thanksgiving 2020

On Sunday, November 22 at 5:00 p.m., Present Music is holding its Thanksgiving performance, Thanksgiving: Wherein Lies the Good.

An essential fixture of Milwaukee’s cultural landscape, Present Music’s annual Thanksgiving concert is a musical embrace of our differences and shared humanity. It will explore new ways of connecting people, inviting audience participation from home. Participants will be invited to sing, dance, and even play an instrument made with a popsicle stick. After the performance, audience members will be invited to ask questions of artists and composers and enjoy one another’s company.

The program includes Alex Weiser’s 2020 Pulitzer Prize finalist work and all the days were purple, which sets wise aphorisms in Yiddish and English to poignant music, sung by soprano Eliza Bagg. The concert also features a special performance by instrument builder and composer Mark Stewart along with music by Robin Holcomb, Angélica Negrón, and Milwaukee native and another 2020 Pulitzer finalist, Michael Torke. Favorite guests The Bucks Native American Singing and Drumming Group and Reagan High School Choir return for special remote performances.
