Captivating Classical Chamber Music!

Ellison Bay Manor 2014 Philanthropy

Our world-class musicians are from organizations such as the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Pro Arte Quartet, Milwaukee Symphony and the Marlboro Music Festival, and perform with faculty from notable Midwestern universities. Over 25 chamber music concerts are presented each year at unique venues throughout Door County.

 Jim and Jean Berkenstock (bassoonist and flutist) are the founders of Midsummer’s Music. They perform with our outstanding ensemble: violinists David Perry, Isabella Lippi, and Stephanie Preucil; violists Sally Chisholm and Allyson Fleck; cellists Walter Preucil and Zachary Preucil; hornist John Fairfield; and pianists William Koehler, and Jeannie Yu; bassist Jason Heath, clarinetist Elizandro Garcia-Montoya, along with oboist Margaret Butler.

Midsummer’s Music performs in intimate and casual settings throughout Door County such as art galleries, retreats, churches, and private homes. All concerts include an inviting reception where you can meet our musicians.

From the great masters such as Mozart, Schubert, and Dvorak (to name a few), to some lesser-known but very accomplished composers, each concert is an unforgettable musical experience.

Midsummer’s Music has been a part of the Door County arts scene for 24 years. From mid-June to mid-July and over the Labor Day holiday, our festival is enjoyed by residents and visitors alike, by people of all ages.
