About the show: 

“A CONCERT OF NOTE” is a recipe for a joyous holiday feast of entertainment, as the program is delightfully “seasoned” with cherished, affecting choral renditions and “peppered” with spoken-word performances.  The works of noted New England poet Emily Dickinson, Welsh writer Dylan Thomas, and award-winning American poet Robert Frost are showcased in a creative collaboration between two landmark Milwaukee organizations:   the Boulevard Theatre and the Plymouth Chorale.

These iconic organizations combine to celebrate these three timeless wordsmiths in three “movements.”  In the first, esteemed Milwaukee actress and director Beth Monhollen shares readings from Dickinson’s work and the Plymouth Chorale contributes choral works based on Dickinson’s writings.

The second features madcap Boulevard founder Mark Bucher interpreting Thomas’ holiday reminiscence “A CHILD’S CHRISTMAS IN WALES,” with the Chorale contributing classic carols.

The final movement showcases the Plymouth Chorale performing "FROSTIANA," a choral setting of seven Frost poems, as set to music by the noted American composer Randall Thompson.

The Boulevard has served audiences for nearly 30 years through its mission of staging exciting, dynamic theatre.  Boulevard recently sold its Bay View theatre space to evolve as a more mobile and fluid arts organization.  The Plymouth Chorale (Donna Kummer, director, and Elna Hickson, accompanist) is a 30-voice community chorus that regularly performs at the recently refurbished Plymouth Church (UCC), just a few blocks east of the UWM campus.

A reception with complimentary refreshments follows performances.  Guests should arrive 15 minutes before performances.  This “banquet of words” is 80 minutes in length, which allows for a festive supper before or after the program.  "A CONCERT OF NOTE" is a harmonious collaboration and is suitable for the entire family.
