Make Music Milwaukee

Baby You

Make Music Milwaukee and the Przekrój Foundation are thrilled to announce the world premiere of Baby You, a public art event where a massive 112-foot long hot air balloon in the shape of a sleeping newborn will be inflated and rise over Milwaukee on Make Music Day, accompanied by a new a cappella choral work by composer Michael Schachter.

As the sun sets in Milwaukee on Friday, June 21, 2024, hundreds of singers will gather in Veterans Park, on the shore of Lake Michigan, to perform the new composition, while behind them the balloon is inflated, takes shape, and begins its tethered ascent. The combined aural and visual experience invokes the shared humanity of all people. Everyone was a baby once: adorable, vulnerable and full of potential.

YOU are invited to join in this community chorus experience. No auditions are required and it is free to participate.
