This week on the pod, something a little different: instead of the usual one-on-one interview with a Milwaukee arts leader, we welcome the entire Imagine MKE team to share their early memories that sparked a love of the arts and their Milwaukee origin story. Lindsay is joined by co-host Esteban Contreras, Communications and Network Development Fellow with Imagine MKE. Enjoy some holiday whimsy before we dive in to the interviews. Happy Holidays, all.

Welcome to Arts Forward MKE, a podcast out of the Imagine MKE podcast shop hosted Lindsay Sheridan, Director of Marketing and PR. We're back from break with a double feature episode about professional vocal early music ensemble Aperi Animam. In this second part, we welcome three panelists from Aperi Animam's recent virtual event #BlackVoicesMatter.

The panelists, in order you first hear them, are: Austin Bare | Venmo: @Austin-Bare-4 | FB: Austin Bare Tiana Sorenson | Venmo: @TianaSorenson | IG: @stoic.but.hollering Nicole McCarty | Venmo: @McCarty22 | FB: Nicole Corinne McCarty We also hear from Daniel Koplitz, Executive Artistic Director of Aperi Animam. Music: Both clips courtesy Aperi Animam Outro: Selection on the Hebrew letter “Daleth" from Thomas Tallis’s second set of Lamentations. Says Daniel, "This was the opener for our concert meditation Libera nos, which we presented at Early Music America’s Emerging Artists Showcase in May 2019. It contains a very spicy “false relation" at the end, where a pitch and its sharpened equivalent sound at the same time creating a jarring dissonance." Intro: Live recording from the final dress rehearsal of Utterance, a work of music theatre Aperi Animam developed with Milwaukee Opera Theatre, Cadance Collective, and Amanda Schoofs last October. The piece itself is from a 16th-century collection of chromatic songs called "The Sibylline Prophecies,” written by Orlande de Lassus for the Duke of Bavaria’s court.

And now, for something a little different. This week, we're taking a break from the usual full length episode to do two things. First, Lindsay sat down with Imagine MKE's summer Marketing and Communications Intern, Maggie Nowakowski. Maggie is an artist in her own right – she dances professionally with an Irish Dance company out of Chicago – and is about to start her senior year as a marketing and arts management student. She shares just a bit of her story and her thoughts on Milwaukee art and culture as she heads out of Imagine MKE. Second, we’d love to invite you to catch up on any of the first 9 episodes of this podcast you may have missed – because hearing the perspectives of each of the 9 folks we’ve interviewed so far is really worth your time.

The conversation centers on Matt's career in comedy, celebrating all that The Underground Collaborative accomplished in its eight years, coping with the pandemic, Matt's insanely large rubber chicken collection, and more.

Today's episode was recorded in February of this year - back when 7 people could easily be in a conference room together, mentioning Bernie Sanders as a presidential candidate was still relevant, and singing together could be done without a second thought. Lindsay sat down with 6 of the 8 members of the band https://www.facebook.com/ruthb8rginsburg (Ruth B8r Ginsburg). She enjoyed a wonderful conversation with these 6 powerful women about their music, activism, and love of Milwaukee. While art as activism has always been relevant, we hope this interview will particularly be a balm and inspiration right now. Song: "All of Everyone at Once" by Ruth B8r Ginsburg Support this podcast
