Conducted by maestro Julian Kuerti, Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra’s 88 full-time musicians ignite the air of the elegant 2,305-seat Uihlein Hall with soaring sound. Symphonic Postcards explores how travel shaped the mellifluous notes of classic compositions such as Mozart’s Symphony no. 38, Mendelssohn’s Symphony no. 3, and a Romania-inspired piece by contemporary composer György Ligeti written entirely on the back of an airport Chili’s napkin. An hour prior to the concert, MSO musicians and local music experts host a complimentary discussion at the Anello Atrium & Magin Lounge in the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts addressing topics about the evening’s performance. Following Friday night’s concert, the conductor and guest soloists hold a free Talkback Q&A session in the atrium where patrons can ask burning questions or hum their favorite woodwind solos aloud.
