Come to the Milwaukee Art Museum for a live concert presented by Present Music in partnership with the Jewish Museum Milwaukee.

See the premiere of “Primitive Blaze,” a new work commissioned from Daniel Kidane as part of a program that explores the theme of identity, drawing on his Eritrean and Russian heritage as well as his eclectic London upbringing.

Live performers include No-No Boy, a multimedia project by Vietnamese-American artist Julian Saporiti who blends folk storytelling and archival imagery to tell the hidden history of Japanese internment camps in WWII America; Anthony R. Green’s “Piano Concerto: Solution” featuring contemporary pianist Eunmi Ko; Viet Cuong’s percussion and sinfonietta masterpiece “Re(new)al”; and Nina Shekhar’s dynamic “Turn Your Feet Around”.

Reservations are required to attend in person or to view the livestream. In-person ticket holders also receive access to the Milwaukee Art Museum galleries.

This performance is presented in conjunction with the exhibition An-My Lê: On Contested Terrain and the Jewish Museum Milwaukee exhibition Then They Came for Me: Incarceration of Japanese Americans During WWII and the Demise of Civil Liberties.

Sponsored by Shepherd Express and New Music USA.

Tickets are $20 for students, $35 for the general public, and $65 for patrons.
