As promised, here is the Cultural Alliance's official response to the budget cuts proposed to the Wisconsin Arts Board. We will be sending this message to all Milwaukee 7 legislators, which includes State Senator Alberta Darling, co-chair of the Joint Finance Committee. We will be requesting a meeting with Sen. Darling to discuss the situation as well.
Please feel free to use or adapt any of this message if you choose to communicate to your state legislators. You can locate your state legislators through the Arts Wisconsin website.
I also want to remind you to check out our video interviews with Milwaukee County Executive candidates Jeff Stone and Chris Abele.
Finally, we're considering planning a summer event that lets you stay connected to your creative colleagues and takes advantage of our wonderful weather and activities. Let us know what kind of event you'd like to attend by taking our short survey. Your opinion matters, so let us know what you think!

|I Dream of Peace|
The Bel Canto Boy Choir, conducted by Ellen Mundy Shuler, and the Vocal Arts Academy, conducted by Emily Holt Crocker, present the Milwaukee premiere of Robert Jager's powerful "I Dream Of Peace", a 20-minute work that paints a haunting picture of war, utilizing texts from children of the Balkans who saw their lives torn apart by war in the 1990s. The children's abhorrence of war creates a deeply moving emotional tapestry rooted in the universal longing for peace. The program also features Srul Irving Glick's uplifting Psalm Trilogy and other works. Sunday, April 10, 2:00PM
