Hillary Clinton Live

Don’t chuck that “I’m With Her” pin just yet, because Hillary is coming to Milwaukee. On Thursday, November 9 at The Riverside (116 W. Wisconsin Ave.), the former senator and secretary of state will share stories from her latest memoir, What Happened, and talk uncandidly about the 2016 election and our country’s current political climate.

Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony

Tchaikovsky was notoriously critical of his own work. The Russian Romantic insisted that his fifth symphony would “never please the public.” From Friday, November 10 through Sunday, November 12, watch the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra prove him wrong, and oh so right, over the course of this stirring concert series at Uihlein Hall (929 N. Water St.).

The brilliant performance will take place on Saturday, November 11 and Sunday, November 12, an from Thursday, November 16 to Saturday, November 18 at Danceworks Studio (1661 N. Water St.).
