Present Music

Since its inception in 1982, Present Music has established itself as a crucial and endlessly imaginative American ensemble, engaging local and international audiences both with a robust advocacy for new work and through high-caliber, thoughtful performances and programming. Director Kevin Stalheim has led the ensemble in acclaimed concerts and tours across the world, with performances at the Interlink Festival of New American Music (Japan), the Bang on a Can Festival (New York), the Istanbul International Music Festival (Turkey), and the Columbia University Composer Portraits Series at Miller Theatre (New York). Present Music's dedication to collaborating with living composers is profound, and has led to the successful development and premieres of countless new works. Within its local community, Present Music's passionate and timely performances have developed a loyal and diverse base of Milwaukee listeners eager for the music of today.

Dave Luhrssen (Shepherd Express) writes, "Present Music has become a leader in contemporary 'serious music,' racing many miles ahead of the musty old avant-garde by making thorny new music fun."
