Description [edit]
Milwaukee's finest private club. It's the former home of Alexander Mitchell and today the elaborate, historic house behind the gate at 900 E. Wisconsin Ave. has been inhabited by the Wisconsin Club far longer than by Alexander Mitchell, who built the place.

The Milwaukee Children’s Choir Annual Gala

The Milwaukee Children’s Choir, Wisconsin’s premier, audition-based youth ensemble, is hosting its annual Gala fundraiser that will take place on May 4, 2017 at the Wisconsin Club (900 W. Wisconsin Ave.). Doors will open at 5:30 with cocktails and passed appetizers, followed by a formal sit-down dinner and concert at 7 p.m. The Milwaukee Children’s Choir serves children during the school day at five Milwaukee Public Schools, providing music education through its grant-funded “Harmony Program” and through a funding partnership with Milwaukee Public Schools. The choir also supports area music educators through clinics and workshops, such as the Milwaukee Choral Conference, an intensive workshop for choral conductors and current and aspiring choral music educators. “The goal of these clinics is to preserve, promote and expand choral arts education for instructors, but also for future generations of kids who want to further explore music,” said Marco Melendez, conductor of The Milwaukee Children’s Choir. Outside of the schools, the choir maintains six levels of choral education for children from 1st-12th grades, offering rehearsal locations and special concerts and performances throughout Southeastern Wisconsin.   “Through each of these mediums, Milwaukee Children's Choir affects the lives of over 1,000 kids each week throughout the academic year,” said Darcie Warren, executive director. “The money raised during our annual Gala will help us sustain and grow these programs.” The charity portion of the Gala will include silent and live auctions, including travel packages, local activity baskets and goods and services from many Milwaukee-area businesses. Over the years, the Milwaukee Children’s Choir Gala has raised tens of thousands of dollars for grants that support and sustain music education programs in Milwaukee. Tickets for the Gala will go on sale on April 1st at http://www.MilwaukeeChildrensChoir.org. For local businesses, groups or individuals interested in sponsorship opportunities, or donating auction items, please contact Darcie Warren at dwarren@milwaukeechildrenschoir.org.

We want to give all children in the Milwaukee area access to choral and music education that will enhance and develop their skills.”   The Milwaukee Children’s Choir serves children during the school day at five Milwaukee Public Schools, providing music education through its grant-funded “Harmony Program” and through a funding partnership with Milwaukee Public Schools.
