Come hear the Concord Chamber Orchestra’s fall concert featuring the Tall Club of Milwaukee’s tallest member who jokes that someone has to play the high notes. However the high notes in this concert will come from violin superstar Julian Rhee. Read the link from the orchestra web site for more info.
After the concert the orchestra hosts a reception with treats from its members, so audience and orchestra may socialize.
Check out the Milwaukee Talls Meetup site for our next event to see meetup attendees. Here is some of the information.

The Tall Club of Milwaukee is starting 2015 with a dinner at the Thunder Bay Grill on Fat Tuesday February 17th, for a Mardi Gras Affair. Our club has it posted as a Milwaukee Talls Meetup event, dinner starting at 6pm. Fox News may well be there to do a story about our group with an interest to follow some of us around in our day to day work lives to see how tall people exist in a world made for average sized people.
Today is not without sadness. Laura Cofran who many of you know from the Paramount Tall Club of Chicago, had a stroke that left her mostly paralyzed over a year ago and on a feeding tube. She also cannot talk. Her husband shared with us today that she doesn’t wish to prolong this state of being and wishes to start her new chapter in Heaven, so please think of Laura. She is currently living in Prince Edward Island in Canada.
As the tallest member of the club and acting president, I’d like to ask any of the membership to stand forward and offer other ideas for activities for this group. Besides the dinner I mentioned above, the Mad Town Talls club is doing a pre Valentines Day dinner that some of us are driving over for.
I also will be scheduling a review of the scholarship applications that have been submitted to us for our local Jason Gosz Memorial Scholarship, and then sending that winner on to vie for the Tall Clubs International Scholarships.
Have a tall time!

Here is an update from Barry 9/23/14:
Thanks for thinking about attending the Weekend. I apologize for the delay in getting the partial pricing published. As our numbers have grown we have decided to encourage our local Meetup people to attend the dances so we have reduced the prices a bit for everyone.
The full package remains at $95.00 until the event. $105.00 at the door.
The Dances on Friday and Saturday will be $10.00 with a cash bar. The Afterhours on Friday and Saturday will be $20.00 with food served at midnight and an open bar. The combination of Dance and Afterhours on any night is $25.00 The cocktail hour and dinner on Saturday will be $40.00. The tours on Saturday are at your own admission prices.
I look forward to seeing you at the Weekend.
We are happy to announce that Miss Tall International 2014, Hannah Eko, will be our guest. We would like to publicize this with Milwaukee media as she is a great role model. Here is a Coast Guard video interview with her, followed by a picture of her winning the pageant at the Tall Clubs International Convention in Washington DC in June. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKw8yJeqd54
