Another favorite of RCB audiences returns to the Racine Zoo Amphitheater on Sunday August 9 at 7 PM. Former Miss Racine and Miss Wisconsin, Jeanie Hatfield, will perform jazz standards with the band.
And the Summer Sweepstakes Spectacular is still going on. You can get entries by participating in the Racine Concert Band Quiz.
And I received information from SoundWave Milwaukee. I was not familiar with the group, so I checked out their web site. The group brings together Milwaukee artists of different disciplines together to collaborate and showcase their work. They have a summer concert coming up on Thursday August 20 at 7 PM, in the Whitefish Bay High School Music wing. Their performance will focus on American Art, with works by Charles Ives, Samuel Barber, and SoundWave Milwaukee's composer-in-residence, Travis Reynolds. The group will also feature the photography of Mairead Kahn and the poetry of Stephen Anderson.
What a cool idea! Tickets are $10, $5 for students. See their web site for more information.
