Present Music

A propulsive, high-octane concert exploring musical remixes and re-imaginings in the minimalist style of Steve Reich as inspired by Radiohead!

Present Music and Co-Artistic Directors Eric Segnitz & David Bloom kick off our 2019-20 season with re:re:rewrite, a rockin’ concert of contemporary music, where you’ll follow a web of inspiration between songwriting pioneers and new music composers who cross over genres to literally rewrite the artform of music – be Present September 7th where we put “Everything in its REICH Place!”

Milwaukee Repertory Theater

For anyone who ever dreamed big—and then didn’t quite make it—comes the riotous story of two childhood friends who spent years chasing the same goal: concert pianist stardom. Two actors, two pianos, and dozens of characters grace the stage in this hilarious portrayal of pushy parents, eccentric teachers, and the triumphs and tortures of being extraordinarily good musicians. Featuring the music of Bach, Beethoven, Billy Joel, Jerry Lee Lewis and more, this wildly popular show not only hits all the right notes; it tickles the ivories and your funny bone too.
