Their aerial acrobatics will leave you breathless! Acrobats and aerialists literally “drop” in to the Milwaukee Symphony. Each gravity-defying feat is choreographed to live music. Contortionists. Strongmen. And jugglers, too. All this and more, performed to music above and around the Orchestra. Dazzling to the eye, delightful to the ear.
