“Game-Changing Jazz Saxophonist” Coming to SMPAC


From the South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center …

The Donny McCaslin Group, musicians featured on rock icon David Bowie’s final album, Blackstar, will perform their first and only scheduled Milwaukee appearance at South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center (SMPAC) on Thursday, October 13, at 7:30 p.m. Donny McCaslin has been hailed as a “game‐changing jazz saxophonist,” who along with the other members of his band, were sought out to perform on Bowie’s last album.

“Presenting the Donny McCaslin Group is part of our mission of bringing creative, innovative and diverse artists to Milwaukee. We believe that a high-profile artist like Donny McCaslin can enrich the appetite for modern jazz music in Milwaukee and put a spotlight on Milwaukee’s own rich jazz scene,” says Rachel Sorce, SMPAC Executive Director. In the past, SMPAC has presented contemporary jazz musicians and composers such as Robert Glasper and Jason Moran.
