Description [edit]
Constructed in 1882, Turner Hall began as a showplace for the panoramic painters and other German immigrant artists who dominated the Milwaukee art scene until the 1920s and throughout the early 1900s. It is the only building in Milwaukee that currently holds the three following honorary architectural and historical designations: a National Landmark, a listing on the National Registry of Historic Places, and a local Historical Landmark. Located in the heart of downtown, across from the BMO Harris Bradley Center, the two-story, 7,000 - plus square foot Ballroom is a central hub for a vast array of events in Milwaukee.

Present Music Season Finale & Party

It’s always a party with PM for our season finale! PM artistic director Kevin Stalheim connects the PM ensemble with guest conductor David Bloom (conductor and co-artistic director of Contemporaneous) for a fascinating variety of music by Jaeger, Trapani, Gordon, and Mazzoli. Our after party features Milwaukee-based Painted Caves (appearances at Summerfest and Chill on the Hill) who combine Middle-Eastern grooves and California surf transport listeners from the sands of the North African desert to the sunny beaches of Baja California!

Season Finale + Party

It’s always a party with Present Music! Vibrant young guest conductor David Bloom (conductor and co-artistic director of Contemporaneous) takes the stage as we explode into our Season Finale + Party. Experience the frenetic and dizzying musical discovery of Andrew Norman’s Try, the variety of jazz-influenced MINDJOB by Jeremy Podgursky, and the spatial exploration of color and texture in Shawn Jaeger’s Far Away. David Lang’s increase builds in cinematic tension to the climax of this exuberant program, with post-concert entertainment by Milwaukee-based Painted Caves for Middle-Eastern grooves and California surf rock. David Bloom says, “Milwaukee is incredibly lucky to have one of the most vital ensembles in the country presenting the consistently exciting programming that Present Music does. This program beams with energy and spirit, and hearing these superb musicians bring it to life will be a special thrill.” Whether you’re new to the PM Nation or a longtime friend, it won’t be a party without YOU! (Program subject to change. This performance is not recommended for children under 10.)
