"I had the opportunity to join you for the premiere performance of Río de Sangre last evening. Wow! Powerful. Intense. Passionate. Emotionally charged - just a few phrases I would use to describe the opera. I was thrilled to hear the powerful presence of both singers and orchestra. Tutti bravi to all. I was thrilled by it all."

“I’m very excited about the All City People’s Parade and I’m hoping we continue to work on it because I think it’s very, very good for the city. I enthusiastically endorse the All-City People’s Parade and Pageant for its efforts to celebrate Milwaukee’s civic identity, creativity and unity. I encourage all Milwaukeeans to partake in this public celebration of the arts and I wish you continued success in all future endeavors.”
“Milwaukee Ballet is very fortunate to have such an outstanding education department. Not only is the Milwaukee Ballet II program and its many outreach endeavors preparing the next generation of dancers, it is also developing the next generation of supporters of the arts.”
