Alverno College and Pabst Theater Group resurrect beloved series

Pabst Theater Group in partnership with Alverno College announce the rebirth of the beloved Milwaukee music series, UNCOVERED, produced by David Ravel.

UNCOVERED

Originating as part of the now-retired Alverno Presents, UNCOVERED is set to live at Turner Hall Ballroom for the next three years at least. The 2017 season will feature reinterpretations of A Tribe Called Quest and Stevie Wonder by Milwaukee artists.

Each UNCOVERED performance brings together a diverse lineup of Milwaukee’s best artists who explore, dissect, and celebrate the most important musicians of our time under the vision of a selected curator. This powerful and unique Milwaukee music series gives artists the time, space, and funding to try something different.

While past UNCOVERED shows have used Hip Hop as a mode of reinterpretation, the premier performance, TribeUNCOVERED, will be the first time the series has considered the genre of Hip Hop within the context of the American Songbook. A Tribe Called Quest is an especially salient choice because the parallels between Jazz and Hip Hop are front and center in their work.
