Meinert promotes ‘Birth of the Cool’ at the Blue Opus

“When the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay presented “Miles Davis’ Birth of the Cool” at the Weidner Center’s Fort Howard Hall last November, it sold out, reports Kendra Meinert, of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “For anybody who didn’t make it in or had to settle for overflow seating, there’s two more chances to catch the performance in which UWGB music faculty and friends re-create the 1957 album from the restored manuscript. The Blue Opus in Bellevue will host performances at 6:30 and 9 p.m. March 1. Tickets are $15 at theblueopus.com.”
