Doors Open Milwaukee

Integrating Musical Creativity into Everyday Life

doorsDoors Open is a project in dozens of cities worldwide that celebrates architecture and design and gives residents a chance to explore their city and feel like tourists in their own town.  Milwaukee was one of the first cities to join the project and certainly has stunning architecture to show off.

ACM is excited to partner with Doors Open Milwaukee again this season to commission composers to write music inspired by four of the spaces and, on the day of the event, to have musicians in each building performing the music every 15 minutes as hundreds of people wander through.

We prominently display the composer’s artistic statement so that everyone knows that the music was custom composed to fit the space.



Venues to be announced by June 2017
