Two weeks of music kicks off Monday when the Washington Island Music Festival returns to the Trueblood Performing Arts Center. For over 25 years, classical musicians from across the country including the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra have come to Washington Island to perform a series of concerts and speak at a number of lectures. Highlights in past years have included the Under the Big Top concert and the children’s music camp. Festival manager Liz Pratt says it is a unique experience for Island residents and visitors.
Some of the events held during the Washington Island Music Festival are free to attend, but donations are encouraged. You can see the full schedule for the event online with this story.
