Jan Serr Studio  |  Ken-David Masur, conductor

Enjoy an evening in the company of friends, clients, and our performers. Classical music fans and first-timers will enjoy the lighthearted approach, an interactive orchestra performance, a wonderful dinner, and a fabulous setting at the modern, newly renovated Jan Serr Studio – an industrial meets modern events space located on the top floor of UWM’s Kenilworth Square East building.

Pictures at an Exhibition was composed by Modest Mussorgsky after the death of his close friend, artist Victor Hartmann. Critic Vladimir Stassov presented a posthumous exhibition of Hartmann’s paintings, drawings, costumes, and architectural sketches. After seeing his friend’s show, Mussorgsky composed a musical tour of his works, with each character piece in the cycle depicting one of Hartmann’s paintings. Audience members will recognize the familiar, brassy “Promenade” between these paintings made of sound.
