Midsummer’s Music presents the final concert tonight, June 14, in the ‘Youthful Exuberance’ program at Björklunden in Baileys Harbor.
“This is one of our favorite places to perform,” explains Executive Director, Kathleen Pearson. “It’s a beautiful spot and the ambiance reflects the history and tradition of this retreat. It has clearly become one of the favorite venues for our audience members.”
Björklunden Vid Sjön, a 425-acre estate on Lake Michigan in Door County, Wisconsin, serves as Lawrence University’s northern campus, hosting retreats and seminars for Lawrence students throughout the academic year and adult continuing-education seminars during the summer. The Björklunden lodge hosts many musical events that are open to the public and the facilities, including lodging, are available for use by private, public, and corporate groups for conferences, meetings, and special events. The historic Boynton Chapel is available for small weddings, baptisms, and family services, and tours are offered during the summer season.
The performance features the following program:
Romanesque, (1910) for Flute, Viola, and Piano by Reynaldo Hahn, (1875-1947)
Prélude, Récitatif, et Variations, Opus 3 for Flute, Viola, and Piano by Maurice Duruflé, (1902-1986)
Jugend (Youth), Opus 139 for Flute, Clarinet, Horn, and Piano by Sigfrid Karg-Elert, (1877-1933)
Quartet in C Minor, Opus 15 for Violin, Viola, Cello, and Piano by Gabriel Fauré, (1845-1924)
“The entire program will hold the audience captive, however, the Quartet in C Minor by Fauré will take your breath away,” says Ms. Pearson.
Björklunden is located at 7590 Boynton Lane in Baileys Harbor.
