Mr. Staniland's music has been called "alternately beautiful and terrifying" by the New Yorker and Ms. Richardson's has been praised as "one of the best young poets of her generation". Esteemed Canadian singers Martha Guth and baritone Tyler Duncan will be joined by pianists Michael Brofman and Erika Switzer.

Present Music

It’s always a party with Present Music! Vibrant young guest conductor David Bloom (conductor and co-artistic director of Contemporaneous) takes the stage as we explode into our Season Finale + Party. Experience the frenetic and dizzying musical discovery of Andrew Norman’s Try, the variety of jazz-influenced MINDJOB by Jeremy Podgursky, and the spatial exploration of color and texture in Shawn Jaeger’s Far Away. David Lang’s increase builds in cinematic tension to the climax of this exuberant program, with post-concert entertainment by Milwaukee-based Painted Caves for Middle-Eastern grooves and California surf rock.

David Bloom says, “Milwaukee is incredibly lucky to have one of the most vital ensembles in the country presenting the consistently exciting programming that Present Music does. This program beams with energy and spirit, and hearing these superb musicians bring it to life will be a special thrill.” Whether you’re new to the PM Nation or a longtime friend, it won’t be a party without YOU!

Odyssey Opera

Odyssey Opera presents WHEN IN ROME, its third annual opera festival comprising fully staged productions of Christoph Willibald Gluck’s Ezio and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Lucio Silla from June 3-12 at the Boston University Theatre. Ezio and Lucio Silla are both composed in the grand tradition of opera seria, with plots revolving around the timeless themes of honor, betrayal, and passion revealed in soul-baring arias. Both operas take place in Ancient Rome and are based on historical generals or dictators. Led by conductor Gil Rose, the Odyssey Opera Orchestra is joined by some of the nation’s most extraordinary opera singers, including mezzo- sopranos Brenda Patterson and Jennifer Rivera, and countertenors Michael Maniaci and David Trudgen.
