Light shows, live music, great food and drink every Thursday night
The Milwaukee County Parks has announced the concert schedule for Music Under Glass (MUG), the concert series at the Mitchell Park Domes. Live performances and computer light shows will fill The Domes every Thursday night, Nov. 7–April 3 (including Thanksgiving). The Domes are located at 524 S. Layton Blvd.
“Music Under Glass celebrates area talent and brings music and culture to our residents,” said Milwaukee County Executive, Chris Abele. “This is an amazing weekly event that transforms The Domes into a fall and winter ‘getaway’.”
The series opens with the WAMI-award-winning Tweed Funk and continues with a variety of musical formats. Concerts run from 6:30-9:30 p.m., with light shows at the break and following the performance.
New this year is an area in the lobby with information tables staffed by community non-profit groups.
Each week, a new group will be present to explain their mission and how the public can get involved.
During the run of the concert series, two of the most popular floral shows will be on display. Beginning November 23, “Nutcracker Suite” will bring a reinterpretation of the holiday classic to the Show Dome.
Beginning January 18, the garden train show, “Gas Lamp Express,” will open, featuring G-scale trains running on over 600 feet of track, surrounded by a landscape created with miniature plants.
Admission to “Music Under Glass” is $6.50 for adults and $5 for youth ages 6-17. Food and beverages are available for purchase from Zilli Hospitality Group.
