A Milwaukee tradition, Present Music’s annual Thanksgiving concert will include the world premiere of a new piece we are commissioning from composer Ingram Marshall, including our Hearing Voices vocal ensemble, the Reagan and Arrowhead High School Choirs, the Present Music Ensemble, the Bucks Native American Singing and Drumming Group, and featuring soloist Lindsay Kesselman, soprano. Under the direction of Artistic Director Kevin Stalheim and in the resounding acoustics of the cathedral, the concert creates a unique and temporary community of listeners, who join in the performance in a closing Friendship Dance. Ingram Marshall will be present at the concert. Described as creating musical landscapes of mists and mysterious places that afford moments of strange lucidity, his most widely-heard work appears on the soundtrack of the movie “Shutter Island”.
