Evening Concert

Music from “On the Waterfront” on tonight’s Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra broadcast


[cue 'Jeopardy' theme music]. "Alex, I'll take American composers for $1000: The composers on tonight's program are all graduates of the same American Conservatory." If you answered What is 'The Curtis Institute'?", then you are correct!.  [And you know A Lot about American composers! Kudos to you!].
