Present Music

Through Present Music and its concerts, Kevin Stalheim has brought some of the most exciting world composers of our time from places such as Australia, Turkey, China, and Austria to Milwaukee.

Kevin Stalheim’s final concert as Artistic Director on June 1st, 2019 brings Present Music back to the Pabst Theater for a celebration involving many local collaborators – both new and old – to the Ensemble.

StalheimTime is a thank you to the Community, Musicians, Audiences, Supporters, and Artistic Collaborators who contributed to each concert experience. We hope you will join us for this amazing milestone event which marks the proverbial passing of the baton for Present Music’s 2019-20 season down to our incoming co-artistic directors.

There’s no way to fully describe what will happen on June 1st, but we can say that the StalheimTime Finale is a truly celebratory affair and black tie is DISCOURAGED! So many surprises are in store, from the Present Music Ensemble and a whole slew of collaborating performers. You’ll feel suspended in time during this night of intrigue, curiosity, whimsy, and – most of all – community.
