It's a date: Gibraltar and the MSO team up for a night of live chamber music
In less than a year, Gibraltar has quickly and quietly assembled an impressive repertoire of themed music nights – from noteworthy, toe-tapping live acts from the worlds of jazz, flamenco and more, to exciting tributes dedicated to Outkast versus Run the Jewels, Prince, Madonna, The Beatles and Nina Simone. And one of their coolest Date Night events – teaming up with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra for nights of live intimate classical music – is making another return this month.
At 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 15, the cozy Walker's Point venue will once again bring in several members of the MSO, this time for a night dedicated to chamber music.
"Chamber music is a form of classical music that is composed for a small group of instruments – typically in an intimate space such as a large room or palace chamber – or in this case, the acoustically sound Gibraltar," notes the event's Facebook listing. "Come hear musicians from the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra like never before in a space that needs no amplification."
The evening's program includes two pieces – Mozart Oboe Quartet in F Major, K370, and Brahms String Quartet #3, Op. 67 – performed MSO members Alex Ayers and Paul Hauer (violins), Nicole Sutterfield (viola), Peter Thomas (cello) and Kevin Pearl (oboe).
Gibraltar is not selling advance tickets for this special chamber music Date Night show, but there is a $10 cover charge, seating is first come first serve and it is a 21-plus event.
And if you're not a chamber music fan, that same night after the event, Gibraltar is hosting an evening of The Beatles at 11 p.m. Like I said, the place has got great themed music nights.
