We open Milwaukee Musaik’s season with Dusk to Dawn commemorating works by long-living composers and celebrating the 250th anniversary of the founder of the wind-quintet genre and Beethoven’s close friend, Anton Reicha.

Don’t miss our Clazzical Chamber Orchestra concert! Yes, we will perform jazz, a Russian jazz piano concerto by Nikolai Kapustin. We welcome Spanish pianist Daniel del Pino for the American chamber premiere of Kapustin’s Piano Concerto No. 2 “JAZZ”. We will also spotlight Musaik virtuosi artists; flautist Heather Zinninger Yarmel, and harpist Kelsey Molinari as soloists in Mozart’s exquisite Concerto for Flute & Harp.

In our season closer Folk Tones, Musaik artists will perform an unforgettable smorgasbord of folk-inspired works ranging from American spirituals and jazz/ragtime to Asian and Hebraic tones. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Florence Price’s Five Folk Songs and Bohuslav Martinu’s thrilling Chamber Music No. 1 Sextet.

It is our sincere wishes for you to join us during our diverse musical season.
