Door Concerts is back for the start of its 29th season tomorrow night in Sturgeon Bay.
The first concert of the season features the University of Madison based Pro Arte Quartet. Door Concerts Board President Jim Ebbeson says everyone can expect to see a great show…
The group was created in Europe right before the start of World War I and has quite a storied history in its 100 years of existence. The quartet came to the United States for a tour during World War II…
The quartet has been centered there ever since.
For the first concert of the season, the new board of directors will be introduced and works of prose and poetry will be read by various members of the board.
Ebbeson says a focal point for the group's new managers has been getting young people involved with and interested in Classical music.
The concert is at Hope Church in Sturgeon Bay. It begins at 6:30 PM, but Ebbeson encourages you to arrive early for a pre-concert talk at 6:00 by retired principal clarinetist with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and retired professor of music at Northwestern University and Birch Creek Music Performance Center Russ Dagon. Dagon will discuss the pieces being performed in the night's concert.
