Welcome to Milwaukee Musaik
A Consortium of Musicians Dedicated to an Imaginative Concert Experience
It is with pleasure that we present the inaugural season of the Milwaukee Musaik (formerly the Milwaukee Chamber Orchestra). We look forward to three exciting programs that are true to our name: a musical mosaic (ger. musik+mosaik) of diverse versatile musicians and premier ensembles from the Milwaukee music scene and beyond.
After our exciting debut with the virtuoso string orchestra concert The Sound of Musaik, led by conductor Alexander Mandl, and an outstanding European Tour concert, we look forward to our final concert of the season. Join us for:
