George Winston grew up mainly in Montana, and also spent his later formative years in Mississippi and Florida. During this time, his favorite music was instrumental rock and instrumental R&B, including Floyd Cramer, the Ventures, Booker T & the MG's, Jimmy Smith, and many more. Inspired by R&B, jazz, blues and rock (especially The Doors), George began playing organ in 1967. In 1971 he switched to the acoustic piano after hearing recordings from the 1920s and 1930s by the legendary stride pianists Thomas "Fats" Waller and the late Teddy Wilson. In addition to working on stride piano, he also at this time came up with his own style of melodic instrumental music on solo piano, called folk piano. George is presently concentrating mainly on live performances, and most of the time he is touring playing solo piano concerts (the Summer Show or the Winter Show), solo guitar concerts, solo harmonica concerts, and solo piano dances (with R&B and slow dance songs).
Please join us in support of a local food bank by bringing a donation of canned food to the concert. There will be collection baskets at the entrances.

Almost everyone knows the story of the classic holiday favorite IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE. It is the uplifting and bittersweet tale of George Bailey’s close call with death on Christmas Eve, of how important and special he is to all those around him – and what this world would have missed had he not been born. It’s a story about the people of Bedford Falls, about neighbors, friends and family, and about the difference one person makes in so many others’ lives. This 1940’s “live broadcast” of Frank Capra’s beloved film takes us back to the Golden Age of Radio. The WVL studio’s “On Air” sign lights up and the heartwarming holiday classic comes to life through the bygone radio formula of a few hardworking actors, live sound effects – and a listener’s imagination. This stage version reminds audiences of everything we love about the movie. This unique approach transports us back in time and refreshes dialogue most viewers already know by heart.

Buffalo, NY might be depressed, but Clara Nowak is not. The devout Catholic is a mother of three, an organizer for her soup kitchen and the caretaker of her family’s local claim to fame: a 20-foot shrine to the Blessed Mother commemorating the miraculous night in 1942 when she appeared to Clara’s father in his barbershop. But when daughter Ruth announces one fateful Christmas Eve that she plans to create a one-woman show about her Grandpa’s story – the real story – this family’s foundations are shaken to the core.

Co-written by Milwaukee High School of the Arts graduate Joe Kinosian, Murder for Two is the perfect blend of music, mayhem, and murder that has played to sold-out audiences all over the country! In this hilarious 90-minute show, two performers play 13 roles – not to mention the piano – in a witty and winking homage to old-fashioned murder mysteries. Called “ingenious” by The New York Times, this fast-paced whodunit is a highly theatrical duet loaded with killer laughs. All performance times and ticket prices are subject to change, please visit www.MilwaukeeRep.com for up to date information.

Lakefront Brewery becomes the next home for the traveling art exhibition, Milwaukee’s Beer Line. A collection of 1950s-era photographs, the show chronicles the little known history that ties together Milwaukee’s railroading and brewing industries. Using images from the Center for Railroad Photography & Art's Wallace W. Abbey Collection, the display shines a light on the impressive railroad, the Milwaukee Road, and the blue-collar labor force that heartily supplied the city's main breweries (Schlitz, Pabst, and Blatz) along what became commonly known as the Beer Line.

Instruments of destruction. Tools of defense and survival. Powerful, awesome, fascinating. Born out of necessity, weapons have been wielded for survival since the beginning of humankind. As we evolved, so did they -- from objects used for defense and hunting, weapons grew into symbols of power, prestige, and art. The Milwaukee Public Museum is excited to present our new cutting-edge exhibit, Weapons: Beyond the Blade. This temporary exhibition will highlight over 180 stunning examples of weapons from over 50 countries throughout history.
