    Welcome to the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music!

    Thank you for joining us for a season of world-class music in a variety of genres, performed by our nationally-recognized faculty members, resident ensembles, and exciting guest artists!

    Its chilly outside so we recommend warming up with some some smokin hot Latin rhythms performed by our newest resident ensemble Orquesta Tumbao, plus some of the best jazz in town! Our Friday Night Jazz Jams provide opportunities to perform and hear other jazz musicians in the Milwaukee area. On the classical side, composer Harold Meltzer will be joining Prometheus Trio for their February concert and talk. Looking ahead to March, our Piano Faculty presents an afternoon of musical wonder and pre-performance arts activity with a family concert featuring Babar and Mother Goose.

    If youre in the mood to dance, we have two special events designed just for you! On Valentines Day, Noche Latina (Latin Night), an evening of Latin Music and Dance featuring our newest resident ensemble Orquesta Tumbao, takes place at the United Community Center. On May 4 we return to the 1940s with Swing! and our Conservatory Big Band at the Astor Hotel Ballroom. On the third Friday of every other month you can also get dance lessons and hear great music with the Vista del Lago Social Club. Theres something for everyone at the Conservatory!

    Rubens QuartetThe Rubens Quartetwhose members come from the Netherlands, Israel and the UShas become one of the finest young quartets of its generation since being founded in 2000. The quartet has impressed audiences throughout its home country of the Netherlands and abroad, and is praised for its warm sound, remarkable sense of rhythm and harmony, and ability to communicate with an audience. Through its rich knowledge of string quartet culture, the mission of the Rubens Quartet is to combine the old with the new, by interpreting lesser known works of the past and present and placing them alongside the great standards of the quartet repertoire. The quartet plays in dance choreographies, connects literature and music, and initiates music theatre performances. In its concert programs, the ensemble regularly pairs classic with contemporary (Haydn with Dutilleux, Shostakovich with Roukens), and is dedicated to promoting new music, having worked closely with such composers as Gyrgy Kurtg, Louis Andriessen and Sofia Gubaidulina.
