Take a peek behind the curtain to see how music is made today – and will be made in the future. Then get creative. Step out of your comfort zone and try your hand at writing a song (with help from a pro).
Finally, watch rising Milwaukee musician Trapper Schoepp and his band improvise and play a few songs written by audience members.
Sound like an interesting night out? It will be. It’s “Making Music” at Radio Milwaukee on Wednesday, Nov. 13.
Here are more details:
After munching on tasty pizza from Transfer Pizzeria Cafe, our evening will start with Milwaukee native Michael Perman -- one of the country's leading observers of cultural trends -- speaking about how the musical co-creation landscape is changing.
Then you’ll write your own songs in a fun, workshop-like setting, led by Peter Himmelman, Emmy- and Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter and film and television composer.
We'll end the night watching and listening to audience members' songs, performed Trapper Schoepp and his band. After the music, Perman will be signing his latest book, "Craving the Future."
