“I love everything about his playing—his rhythm, his confidence, his understanding of the music.” – Wynton Marsalis   After first encountering the piano at the age of six, Joey Alexander was quickly playing jazz standards from his father’s record collection by ear. Born on the island of Bali, this 13-year-old phenomenon is now wowing audiences all over the world, including Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Jazz Foundation of America at the Apollo, and the 2016 Grammy Awards, where he received two nominations—one for Best Improvised Jazz Solo for the track “Giant Steps” from his debut album My Favorite Things, and the second for Best Jazz Instrumental Album. His second studio album, Countdown, was released in 2016 and features three original compositions, and he received a nomination at the 2017 Grammy Awards for Best Improvised Jazz Solo for the title track. Achieving a level of critical acclaim entirely unheard of for a jazz artist of his age, media appearances and interviews have included The Today Show, 60 Minutes, CNN, The New York Times, and People Magazine.

Saturday, October 21, 2017
CelticMKE Center
October 21, 2017 at 7:00 PM (Sat)
Prolific recorders, the Flanagan Brothers – Mike on accordion and Joe on banjo, with Louis on guitar in the early days – performed throughout the dance of halls of New York City during the first decades of the twentieth century. Mick Moloney is the author of “Far From the Shamrock Shore: The story of Irish American History Through Song” released by Crown Publications in February of 2002 with an accompanying CD on Shanachie Records. He holds a Ph.D. in folklore and folklife from the University of Pennsylvania. He has taught ethnomusicology, folklore and Irish studies courses at the University of Pennsylvania, Georgetown, and Villanova Universities, and currently teaches at New York University in the Irish Studies program. Irish music's accordion virtuoso Jimmy Keane was born in London of Irish-speaking parents from Connemara and Kerry. His late father Jimmy was a magnificent sean-nos (old style) singer, and along with young Jimmy’s mother Mary, actively encouraged him to take up traditional Irish music. Jimmy’s accomplishments are far reaching. He has achieved astonishing and unprecedented success in competitive playing, having won five consecutive All-Ireland titles on the piano accordion. He has always been an avid collector and arranger of old tunes and is becoming increasingly known for his original compositions, many of which have become part of the mainstream of traditional Irish music around the world. He also has recorded and produced numerous albums.

Scott Kelly, author of Endurance, at UWM Union

Scott Kelly, author of Endurance, at UWM Union

Monday, October 23, 2017
University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee Union
October 23, 2017 at 7:00 PM (Mon)
The veteran of four space flights and the American record holder for consecutive days spent in space, Scott Kelly has experienced things very few have. Now, he takes us inside a sphere utterly inimical to human life. Kelly describes navigating the extreme challenge of long-term spaceflight, both existential and banal: the devastating effects on the body; the isolation from everyone he loves and the comforts of Earth; the pressures of constant close cohabitation; the catastrophic risks of depressurization or colliding with space junk; and the still more haunting threat of being unable to help should tragedy strike at home - an agonizing situation Kelly faced when, on another mission, his twin brothers wife, Gabrielle Giffords, was shot while he still had two months in space. Scott Kelly's humanity, compassion, humor, and passion resonate throughout, as he recalls his rough-and-tumble New Jersey childhood and the youthful inspiration that sparked his astounding career, and as he makes clear his belief that Mars will be the next, ultimately challenging step in American spaceflight. A natural storyteller and modern-day hero, Kelly has a message of hope for the future that will inspire for generations to come. Here, in his personal story, we see the triumph of the human imagination, the strength of the human will, and the boundless wonder of the galaxy.

FANTASTIC reveals their art well beyond the purview of the newspapers and magazines, informed by a personal vision of the world and a fearless commitment to the unbridled expression of that vision through their art.

Eccentric Manhattan socialite Florence Foster Jenkins once declared, “people may say I can’t sing, but no one ever said I didn’t sing.” And, oh, did she sing – often and loudly, but rarely on key. Her recitals brought her a legion of die-hard fans, and she capped her improbable career with a Carnegie Hall concert that famously sold out in two hours. Her story was recently told in an Oscar-nominated film starring Meryl Streep. Time Out calls Souvenir “a memorable illustration of the purely theatrical magic that can turn the tinniest ear to gold.” Souvenir is a charming and hilarious musical comedy that reminds us that can achieve anything when you set your mind to it.

Join us on a Sunday morning for our very popular and fun brunch tour complete with fabulous food, drinks, history, and newfound friends. Why was the Historic Third Ward once known as the Bloody Third Ward? Who invented the Bloody Mary and why are their so many variations of the popular drink? These are just a few of the many questions to be answered on this unique Sunday brunch tour complete with a glimpse into Milwaukee's past. This tour includes traditional brunch items, plus four 6-ounce Bloody Mary's.  For those that prefer to not have Bloody Mary's on this tour, we offer substitute mimosas, domestic beer or non-alcoholic options for you. KEY DETAILS:  Tour Length – Approximately one mile, with plenty of walking breaks and opportunities to sit down along the way. We spend approximately 20 minutes at each restaurant. Time Commitment – Between 2.5 - 3 hours, depending on the pace of the group Tastings - All tastings are included in the price. Portions are often served family-style. Samples are substantial - for the vast majority of attendees, you will not need to plan for a meal after the tour!
