Presto Mambo featuring Platypus Theatre

Yaniv Dinur, conductor | Platypus Theatre, guest artists

A concert about the music of the Americas takes an unexpected turn when Max – an energetic but impulsive young boy – makes his way onto the stage to “help” the orchestra.  Soon Max is on a whirlwind adventure that takes him from the concert hall to the vibrant lands of Latin American culture where – with the help of his new friend, Mambo the dog, the Milwaukee Symphony and the audience – Max learns the magic of Latin rhythms and how to “dance” with the music.

All concerts held in Uihlein Hall, Marcus Center for the Performing Arts.

*A family of four saves 60% off the price of single tickets.
