New York City's 'East of the River' music ensemble was founded by internationally renowned recorder players Nina Stern and Daphna Mor. The project explores haunting and virtuosic melodies from the traditional repertoires of the Balkans, Armenia and the Middle East, as well as gems of the Medieval European classical repertory. The music is arranged and interpreted by musicians whose musical backgrounds include Classical, Jazz and World music. This internationally-acclaimed group is sponsored in part by our collaboration with Milwaukee's Early Music Now Series.
If you've not yet visited the Rita to attend a concert, art exhibit, performance, cultural presentation, or class in the arts and humanities, we invite you to do so soon! We look forward to welcoming you to our incredible new cultural home!
