A number of concerts coming up

The season seems to be starting earlier this year.

Don't forget the Milwaukee Festival Brass performance on Saturday October 17 at St. John's Lutheran Church in Brookfield.  The concert begins at 7:30 and features music of Gabrieli, Percy Fletcher, and Gustav Holst.  A pre-concert dinner is available beginning at 6:30.  Dinner and the concert is only $20.

A week later, the Menomonee Falls Symphony explores rhythm in music when it welcomes guest percussionist Cecilio Negron Jr., who will not only demonstrates a wide variety of percussion instruments, but will invite and include the audience throughout the concert with mesmerizing patterns of rhythm.

The concert will include light classical pieces and some Pops music.  And, if you ever wanted to see what it is like on stage, the MFSO performers will invite you to sit with them on stage for a very different concert experience.

The concert will be at the Sussex Hamilton Fine Arts Center and will begin at 7:30.  See the MFSO web site for more information and to purchase tickets.

Finally, also on October 24, the Concord Chamber Orchestra performs with guest soloist Julian Rhee, the winner of the 2015 Walter A. and Dorothy J. Oestreich Concerto Competition.  He will perform the second violin concerto of J.S. Bach.  Also on the program are works by Handel, Charles Ives, and the Beethoven Seventh Symphony.  The concert is at St. Matthew's Ev. Lutheran Church in Wauwatosa.  See the CCO web site for more information and to purchase tickets.
