Pius XI Vocal Jazz Night @ Wendy Joy Lindsey Theater
Apr 24 @ 7:00 pm

The Pius XI Vocal Jazz Night is celebrating its third year, and we are extremely excited to be returning home to the Father Robert V. Carney Performing Arts Center for this annual event. Come and witness the transformation of the space into a cool nightclub and sit ON the stage to enjoy the intimate, cabaret ambiance. Students from the vocal jazz ensemble work with and are accompanied by esteemed local musicians on solo songs for this great night of jazz. The students work hard for several weeks to gain an understanding of the jazz style, dabble in improvisation and work on fine-tuning their ears to new harmonies. They will even treat you to some of their ensemble pieces — which have been sent on to the State WSMA Solo/Ensemble competition this year.

This year’s guest artists include: vocal coach Ellen Winters Reynolds, pianist Sam Steffke, bassist Jon Blessing and internationally renowned jazz vocalist, saxophonist and music director Joe Turano (a 1969 Pius XI alum!). We look forward to providing friends, family and the community with a stellar night of music, snacks, and a cash bar courtesy of Last Call Beverages.

Milwaukee Festival Brass: Star Wars @ Wendy Joy Lindsey Theater
May 4 @ 7:00 pm

The Milwaukee Festival Brass will conclude its 38th Season in epic fashion with an all-Star Wars themed concert titled ”May the Fourth Be With You.” The program will be filled with the iconic music of John Williams and other composers who have lent their craft to the Star Wars saga.

“The music of Star Wars is one of the most widely shared cultural experiences we have in our society today,” said Music Director Mark A. Taylor. “No matter which generation you are a member of, or when you were introduced to the Star Wars series, this is music that is instantly recognizable. The sounds transport you back in time to the moment you first experienced each film or program.” The concert will feature music from each of the Star Wars trilogies, as well as music from the more recent streaming programs within the Star Wars canon. Listeners may even be treated to a surprising mash-up of a very familiar Star Wars melody and an iconic big band tune.
