  • Dave Mason’s "Traffic Jam"
    Captain Frederick Pabst contributed to Milwaukee?s status as a cultural landmark of the upper Midwest by building Pabst Theater, formally known as Das Neue Deutsche Stadt-Theater, in 1895. According to legend, when he was informed that his theater had burned to the ground, the brewing magnate interrupted his European vacation to wire home the order to ?Rebuild at once!??and 11 months later, the stage was completed anew. Where the old theater honored German artists by having their names inscribed along the cornice of the auditorium, the new building featured an international consortium of cultural notables. The theater?s globe-spanning influences were made even more apparent with the installation of an Austrian crystal chandelier and an Italian marble staircase.

  • Marcus Center for the Performing Arts
    Great symphony orchestras can breathe new life into centuries-old works of art, but few can excel in looking to the future as well. For more than half a century, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra has done just that, enriching its community while drawing upon innovative technologies to reach listeners across the country. Its nationally syndicated radio broadcast, for instance, has filled the airwaves for more than four decades, transmitting the sounds of the MSO's 83 musicians to some 3.8 million listeners and their 7.6 million pets. The the orchestra also became the county's first to offer live recordings for download through iTunes. But it's not all internet and radio-play here—the MSO's pioneering spirit extends into its music, where it has premiered works by composers such as Philip Glass, Roberto Sierra, and Marc Neikrug.

  • Musical Offering Limited
    Led by artistic director Joan Parsley, Ensemble Musical Offering floods ear canals with faithful period renditions of music from the Renaissance, Baroque, and Classical eras. A Chain of Love commemorates Valentine's Day with a program of romantic pieces by such composers as Bach and Biber, played on meticulously restored period instruments including the lute, viola d'amore, and hand-cranked Gregorian monk. Soprano Sarah Richardson lends her honeyed vocals to love songs from Purcell and Stoetzel while English translations of German and Italian poetry from the period fill heads with vintage lovey-dovey thoughts. The Cathedral Church of All Saints houses the beautiful melodies in Gothic revival elegance, with a recently restored hardwood floor that dampens distracting reverb and gives reformed termites a chance to prove themselves.

  • The Wisconsin Philharmonic
    In "From France to Spain," the Wisconsin Philharmonic ends a season that paid tribute to the great French composers with a border-breaching grand finale that links the Gallic tradition to Spain and the U.S. Joined by award-winning young Spanish soloist Jose Franch-Ballester, the orchestra leads with Debussy's Clarinet Rhapsody, followed by Copland's Clarinet Concerto, whose quintessentially American character shows up in the score's jazzy passages, which Copland composed in a star-spangled tuxedo. A suite of Spanish-flavored pieces from Basque composer Maurice Ravel concludes the evening, beginning with the notoriously difficult Alborada del Gracioso and culminating in the satisfying rhythmic thrum of Bolero.
