Buffalo Nation (Bison bison)

When: Sat., May 7, 4:30 & 7:30 p.m. 2011

Buffalo Nation (Bison bison) by composer and Milwaukee native Jerome Kitzke and librettist Kathleen Masterson is one of the largest commissions in Present Music history in terms of scope, scale and creative investment. This piece will illuminate in music and text the huge, varied and largely untold story of the American Bison from pre-history to the herd’s late 19th century decimation and on to present time. This world premiere commission was made possible by The Map Fund.
