Two students from Milwaukee Public Schools’ Riverside University High School performed Wednesday at the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra pops concert: ‘The Musicals of Jerry Herman.”
The Marcus Center for the Performing Arts’ “Arts Connect” partnership with Riverside made the opportunity possible. That partnership has connected Riverside with touring Broadway performers who provide workshops for students.
During the Wednesday show, RUHS students Anthony Herd and Morgan Kruger performed a duet during the show from the musical “La Cage aux Folles.” The students are part of the vocal music program at RUHS, led by teacher Milena Walker.
Herman, a celebrated composer and lyricist, wrote scores for Broadway musicals including “La Cage aux Folles” and “Hello, Dolly!”
Milwaukee Public Schools continues to grow arts opportunities for students, including the addition of more than 100 art, music and physical education specialist teaching positions in recent years.
Thanks to our Member Group, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, for making this night a success!
