words by Ryan Schleicher
We’ve been good pals with Peck School for a while now as they believe in the power of WMSE programming and we believe in their perpetual support and presentation of the arts. Our relationship is about as symbiotic as it gets. There are two things we want to tell you about PSOA today.
First, PSOA just unveiled a sleek, new and improved website. It’s really well designed and easy to navigate. So check it out to understand just how much art they produce (hint: it’s A LOT).
Secondly, this weekend sees PSOA again presenting one of the more cutting-edge music festival Milwaukee has to offer – Unruly Music. It’s three days of mind-bogglingly talented musicians making truly inspiring music. Seriously, go read about all three performances at the Unruly page. Really great stuff, folks.
Finally, we just wanted to point out what great taste PSOA has in campaign subjects. Tom’s musical brain might be the perfect representation of what Unruly is all about.
