Jazz Unlimited of Greater Milwaukee
The mission of Jazz Unlimited of Greater Milwaukee (formerly Unlimited Jazz of Greater Milwaukee), founded in 1971, is to promote the preservation, enhancement and encouragement of America's purest art form, Jazz, accomplishing it through communication, presentation of concerts for public enjoyment and providing annual scholarships to further musical education for our youth.
The mission of PianoArts is to develop innovative ways to foster appreciation and performance of classical music by identifying and training a new generation of pianists with exceptional musical and verbal communication skills and by presenting them to diverse audiences.
The keys to a successful career as a pianist go beyond the piano. That's the philosophy of PianoArts. Based in Milwaukee, PianoArts is a performing and educational organization that presents a national competition and music festival for some of the nation's most talented musicians, ages 15 through 20. The competition offers prizes, scholarships, and future performances, but the winners - in fact, all of the contestants - receive training and advice on all aspects of performance.
Participants have private conferences with well-known judges and participate in classes with professional musicians to hone their skills in playing with an ensemble and in speaking effectively about music. All contestants rehearse and perform a duo for violin/piano or cello/piano with a musician from the Milwakee Symphony Orchestra, and finalists have the opportunity to perform a full concerto with the MSO during the prize round.
