It's Outpost's 50th Anniversary!
Once upon a time we had some really big plans to celebrate our 50th birthday but then the coronavirus shut down the world and everything changed.
Not to fear though! We can still celebrate 50 years of Outpost...virtually. The party starts here!
Online Facebook concerts!
Plug in your speakers because we've got FOUR fantastic artists coming your way. All you have to do to see them is join us on our Facebook page.
Janet Schiff LIVE at 7pm on April 23rd
Janet, a cellist and composer from Nineteen Thirteen, a Milwaukee based chamber rock duo, will be performing solo but solo to Janet means something like 20 cellos at one time with the help of electronic technology. Her cello is from Transylvania, 1913 and she creates cello layers live for each audience. Don’t miss this!
Justin Jagler LIVE at 7pm on April 24th
Armed with rock ‘n’ roll zeal and rhythmic guitars, Justin Jagler delivers soulful roots music across America’s heartland and beyond. Through songs like “Stay Freaky, Giannis” and “Harvest Time,” Jagler’s relentless songwriting and nimble voice pay homage to folk traditions and explore the lives of 21st-century characters.
Keith Pulvermacher LIVE at 7pm on April 25th
Keith grew up three doors down from his grandparents in the town of Butler. Being brought up around so much family with strong roots in music and love, the inspiration for his music was instilled deep within his soul. He likes to say his music isn't country, It isn’t blues, It isn’t folk, It isn’t rock. It's distinctly "Midwestern" music inspired by Wisconsin.
414 Quartet PRE-RECORDED at 2pm on April 26th
The Milwaukee-based 414 Quartet strives to raise awareness of classical music through performance, education, and community outreach. Formed in 2017, the quartet comprises Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra violinists Alex Ayers and Paul Hauer, violist Alejandro Duque, and cellist Peter Thomas. Deeply committed to education and outreach, the quartet's individual musicians have decades of experience as teachers, coaches, and music advocates.Whether an avid classical music lover or a first time listener, the accessible and innovative 414 Quartet is an experience not to miss.
