3. Let’s Dance!

MARCH 20

Feel free to cut a rug in your living room, or wherever you decide to stream this upbeat virtual concert presented by the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. It features danceable works by composers from Argentina, Cuba and Puerto Rico. 

4. Story Slam: Reimagining Self

MARCH 25

If you’ve always been interested in participating in one of Ex Fabula’s storyslam events, but are terrified by the prospect of speaking to a crowded room, why not try participating in this virtual event instead? You’ll still get a chance to tell your story, and listen to others’ stories. But you won’t have to worry about standing under hot lights in front of a crowd.  

5. The Reopening of Discovery World

MARCH 27

The beloved science and technology museum will reopen to visitors at the end of this month. Several other popular local museums, like the Milwaukee Art Museum and the Milwaukee Public Museum, will also be open to in-person visitors by the end of the month.
