Milwaukee's masters of early music, Ensemble Musical Offering, have found a link between the Baroque era and our city's popular Alterra Coffee Roasters in the form of J.S. Bach's “Coffee Cantata.” The Prospect Alterra (2211 N. Prospect Ave.) will be the site of a pre-concert coffee klatch and lecture by UW-Milwaukee historian Merry Wiesner-Hanks, along with an open rehearsal, at 7 p.m. April 13. The Ensemble's concert the following night, 8 p.m. April 14, takes place at the Cathedral of All Saints (818 E. Juneau Ave.). It will feature Bach's “Coffee Cantata” along with his “Wedding Cantata” and Concerto for Two Harpsichords in C minor.

The MacDowell Club of Milwaukee is sponsoring a unique concert: a recital on the mighty new Schantz organ at the Gesu Parish on the Marquette University campus. Milwaukee-area organists Michael Batcho and Sheri Masiakowski will perform works of J.S. Bach, Jeanne Demessieux, S. Theophane Hytrek, Jean Langlais and Richard Proulx. The concert will be held 7:30 p.m. April 14 at Gesu Parish, 1145 W. Wisconsin Ave. Admission is free.


The new owners of the Shops of Grand Avenue have revealed a radical redesign for the mall, which will include a proposed grocery store, an urban marketplace and contemporary office spaces, as well as the potential for a new name. Will the new owners succeed where past owners have failed in turning Grand Avenue around?
