The Wisconsin Union Theater has planned an impressive smörgsbord for the 2008-09 season. The season is divided into several series, each with its own highlights.
Here are a few details:
- The Concert Series features classical music, including pianist Leon Fleisher and the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra.
- The World Music Series ranges from Angelique Kidjo to Balkan Beat Box. It also includes September's exotic Madison World Music Festival.
- The Isthmus Jazz Series brings Trombone Shorty and Andy Bey to town. The series culminates in the free Isthmus Jazz Festival in June 2009, starring David Sanchez.
- The highlight of the Special Events series is tap-dancer extraordinaire Savion Glover.
- The Travel Adventure Film Series returns, as does Jeffrey Siegel's Keyboard Conversations at Mills Hall.
Details about the series and the complete listing and dates of events are available in the related downloads at right. The Wisconsin Union Theater is also readying a new website that will launch in early May. More info about the theater's programming can also be found in numerous photo galleries on Flickr as well as on its blog The Marquee.
