David Bloom | Present Music
Welcome to Arts Forward MKE hosted by Lindsay Sheridan, Director of Marketing and PR at Imagine MKE. Each episode, Lindsay sits down with an arts leader and asks them about their early memories that sparked a love of the arts, what they're up to in their work now, and their dreams for the future of arts and culture in Milwaukee.
This week, Lindsay speaks with David Bloom, co-artistic director of Present Music. They talk about David's personal musical mission, Present Music's virtual fall programming (buy tickets to watch still at www.presentmusic.org), Milwaukee's enthusiastic new music audiences, and much more.
Intro and outro music is from Present Music's virtual Thanksgiving concert, "Wherein Lies The Good."
