Music Under Glass: The Cheap Shots (6:30pm)
The Milwaukee County Parks has announced the concert schedule for Music Under Glass (MUG), the concert series at the Mitchell Park Domes. Live performances and computer light shows will fill The Domes every Thursday night, Nov. 7–April 3 (including Thanksgiving). The Domes are located at 524 S. Layton Blvd.
“Music Under Glass celebrates area talent and brings music and culture to our residents,” said Milwaukee County Executive, Chris Abele. “This is an amazing weekly event that transforms The Domes into a fall and winter ‘getaway.’”
The series opens with the WAMI-award-winning Tweed Funk and continues with a variety of musical formats. Concerts run from 6:30-9:30 p.m., with light shows at the break and following the performance.
New this year is an area in the lobby with information tables staffed by community non-profit groups. Each week, a new group will be present to explain their mission and how the public can get involved.
“In addition to taking in great performances, seeing spectacular light shows, and exploring ‘Milwaukee’s Living Landmark,’ the public can become aware of all the great opportunities the non-profits offer,” said John Dargle, Interim Parks Director. “Concert-goers will be introduced to a variety of organizations and will learn how their involvement can make our community a better place.”
Funding partners will also have information booths in the lobby, where individuals can learn more about their services and products.
During the run of the concert series, two of the most popular floral shows will be on display. Beginning November 23, “Nutcracker Suite” will bring a reinterpretation of the holiday classic to the Show Dome. Beginning January 18, the garden train show, “Gas Lamp Express,” will open, featuring G-scale trains running on over 600 feet of track, surrounded by a landscape created with miniature plants.
Music Under Glass is fully funded through generous partnerships with the Milwaukee County Parks Department. Funding partners include WaterStone Bank, VMP, Blue Moon Brewing Company, and Friends of The Domes,
Admission to “Music Under Glass” is $6.50 for adults and $5 for youth ages 6-17. Food and beverages are available for purchase from Zilli Hospitality Group.
