What the Critics say...

"America's most important new-music ensemble might well be Milwaukee's own Present Music."

-Tom Strini, Third Coast Digest

"You don't usually see robots and amplifiers at the symphony; nor are the composers usually present in the room to literally breathe life into their new orchestral arrangements."

-Cara Slingerland, Marquette Tribune

"Present Music has become a leader in contemporary "serious music," racing many miles ahead of the musty... avant-garde by making thorny new music fun."

-Dave Luhrssen, Shepherd Express
