Don't miss our opening night gala, the first performance of a collection of chamber music entitled, In an English Country Garden. We’ll dazzle your taste buds with gourmet chocolates, made locally by the confectioners at Door County Candy, and raise our glasses together in a champagne toast to performing artists young and old. Enjoy a prelude concert by Door County String Academy musicians, before special guest Kathleen Blankenburg, a garden designer also known as The Gardening Angel, discusses what truly constitutes an English garden. Then, prepare to be whisked away with the premiere performance of works by Gerald Finzi, Ralph Vaughan Williams and Charles Villiers Sanford as you might imagine strolling through an English garden. The evening will close on a sparkling note as audience members meet the performing artists with Midsummer’s Music Festival and chat with friends and fellow concertgoers at a post concert party. Tasty treats and fine wine will abound, including delicious cupcakes created in Sister Bay at Cupcake Heaven.
Gerald Finzi, "Interlude in A Minor"
Ralph Vaughan Williams, "Quintet in D Major"
Charles Villiers Stanford, "Quartet in F Major"
