Midsummer’s Music continues its emphasis on radically appealing concerts for the 2017 festival season, with exciting opportunities to experience powerful music in unique settings throughout the county. Offering chamber music for winds, strings and piano performed in intimate and unique settings throughout Door County, venues include art galleries, churches, and private homes. From such masters as Mozart, Schubert and Dvořák to some lesser-known but very accomplished composers, each concert is an unforgettable musical experience. The 2017 season runs June 16 – July 23 and Aug. 25 – Sept. 4.
Midsummer’s Music is once again collaborating with poets from Write On, Door County to write poems for 10 concerts.
At the four concerts at Woodwalk Gallery in Egg Harbor, owners Jillaine and Andrew invite attendees to bring a picnic and arrive at the gallery starting at 5 pm. For two hours, people can enjoy their food and relax with new and old friends while exploring the gallery and beautifully landscaped gardens. At the beginning of each concert, a Woodwalk artist will introduce a piece that was created specifically for the concert, based on music being performed that night.
The entire festival season includes nine unique programs in 34 concerts spanning a seven-week period. As is the Midsummer’s Music tradition, programming incorporates a mix of well-known composers alongside others who are less familiar for an unforgettable, thoroughly enjoyable experience. Receptions, often with wine and hors d’oeuvres, follow most concerts, where attendees can mix and mingle with new and old friends, as well as the musicians.
Most concerts are $29 for adults, $10 for students, and children 12 and under are free. Subscriptions consisting of four concert tickets and flex-packs of six or eight tickets are available. For tickets and complete concert information, visit midsummersmusic.com or call 920.854.7088.
