American Wind Symphony Returns to Sturgeon Bay

The Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center and the City of Sturgeon Bay proudly announced the return of the American Wind Symphony Orchestra aboard the Point Counterpoint II. This unique silvery vessel draws a great deal of attention when it arrives, and it has been almost ten years since it was last here. The vessel will be docked in Sturgeon Bay’s Graham Park for a public concert on the lawn on Saturday, July 25 at 7:30 pm.

Attendees to the public concert are encouraged to bring a chair or blanket and enjoy this fantastic concert. The Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center will also be renting chairs to help fundraise to cover the cost of bringing the orchestra to the county.

The Point Counterpoint II is a 195-foot vessel that has been touring the world since 1976 under the direction of Mr. Robert Boudreau. The roof of the vessel opens to a magnificent 75-foot stage that is completely self-contained, acoustically designed and has permanent pedestal seating designed by Japanese sculptor, Yasuhide Kobashi. The boat will be arriving on Friday, July 24 and departing on Monday, July 27.

A private Patron Concert will also be held on Sunday afternoon, July 26. This unique opportunity and exclusive concert is limited to 70 attendees. In addition to the wonderful concert, the patrons will be treated to an intimate tour of the onboard art gallery and a private wine and cheese reception with the musicians. The musicians are young talented men and women from colleges and universities all over the world.
