“It’s not just a concert: it’s an experience.”

                                                                   – Present Music subscriber

Whether you were there for Present Music’s rousing season opener or not, you are an integral part of making unique events possible – like our “awe-inspiring” concert that mixed Mozart with John Adams, or the new piece of music by award-winning composer Christopher Cerrone that will have its world-premiere at our Thanksgiving concert

We need you. Your support is increasingly important as the trend of dwindling foundation and corporate support continues, while our desire to make new music with you and Milwaukee’s youth grows.

Will you join a group of dedicated supporters with a gift to Present Music’s 34th annual season? 

The theme of this season is “Lines”.  During the year, you’ll hear how contemporary music connects back to its roots in the classical period.  New and old musical ideas interweave throughout October’s Carnival concert, our intimate chamber concerts in February, the Equinox celebration in March, and our new music party in June.

Your support advances the creation and performance of music by living composers and two of our ground-breaking education and outreach programs: The Creation Project and ComposeMilwaukee

More than ever it takes broad community collaboration to make our concerts the exciting happenings you expect.  Your contribution will make a difference for future performances of Present Music!
