  1. Your headline which includes “The Apollo Chamber Players perform new Croatian music…” is incorrect and misleading.

    From far superior WPR’s write-up about this: “Join the Apollo Chamber Players in concert on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. in the Edgerton Performing Arts Center for their Wisconsin premiere of Croatian Connections. Croatian Connections, was generously underwritten by Frederic Attermeier, a native of Cudahy, WI and first premiered in Houston, Texas in 2016, Croatian Connections explores the Croatian inspirations of the ‘Father of the String Quartet’ Josef Haydn, and music celebrating Croatian cultural heritage.” Source:

    In fact, as you yourself note in your story, the new string quartet that will have its Wisconsin premiere was written by New York City-based composer Alexandra du Bois. Du Bois is not a Croatian name.

    Croatian inspired but not “new Croatian music”.

    Get the difference?
