Embrace the universal language of love with Milwaukee’s own cutting-edge new music ensemble -- Present Music. All aspects of love will be explored through music from bliss to heartache and everything in between.
The Love concert will feature a variety of contemporary composers whose music discovers love’s limitless possibilities. Present Music has commissioned Grammy-Award Winner Michael Daugherty, one of the most performed and recorded American composers today, to create a new work for voice and ensemble, entitled The Labyrinth of Love. This world premiere will take the audience on an unpredictable journey through the poetry and writings of women from ancient Greece’s Sappho, Victorian England's Elizabeth Barrett Browning to Hollywood's Elizabeth Taylor. Alongside a rich, musical soundscape created by Daugherty, soprano Jennifer Goltz, who possesses a "brilliant voice full of subtle allure and sprightly energy", will join Present Music for this exciting event.
Milwaukee’s own chanteuse extraordinaire, Robin Pluer, will join Present Music in a special performance featuring music from Edith Pilaf.
