Encore Grand Eloquence Scheduled for Sept. 2

More than 200 people were in attendance at the first public event ever held at the Ellison Bay Estate on July 17. They enjoyed a complete, guided tour of the largest home in Wisconsin followed by a chamber music concert performed by members of Door County’s Midsummer’s Music Festival and then, celebrated their work with an array of wine and delicious hors d’ oeuvres.

On Sept. 2 at 3 pm, Midsummer’s Music Festival will present one more opportunity to enjoy intimate chamber music in the opulent setting of this bluff side mansion overlooking the waters of Green Bay in a joint benefit concert with United Way.

Their repertoire consists of Gustav Mahler’s Quartet Movement in A Minor for violin, viola, cello and piano.
