Midsummer’s Music Festival is proud to announce and welcome Jami Stutting as the Nonprofit’s Director of Development and Marketing. Stutting will be responsible for fundraising, grant writing, public relations and social media administration.
Midsummer’s Music Festival is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that has been bringing classical concerts to Door County for over 20 years. Under the Artistic Director and Founder, James T. Berkenstock, Midsummer’s Music Festival has grown from two concerts per summer to over 20 concerts between June and mid-July. And more recently, concerts are now available in May, Labor Day Weekend and during the Christmas holiday season. World-class musicians from organizations such as the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Pro Arte Quartet, and the Marlboro Music Festival, along with faculty from notable Midwestern universities, perform in intimate and casual settings throughout Door County such as art galleries, retreats, churches, and private homes. All concerts include an inviting reception where audience members can meet the 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.
“Jami’s passion is exactly what we’ve been looking for to help us grow our audiences and reach our long-term goals,” states Kathleen Pearson, Executive Director of Midsummer’s Music Festival.
Stutting earned her Bachelor of Arts Degree in English, from the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point, where she focused on writing, editing, and publishing. She served as the Community Relations Director for Angelus Retirement Community in Clintonville, WI, before moving to Door County in 2006. Since moving to Sturgeon Bay, Stutting served as the Operations/Financial Development Assistant at the Door County YMCA, and more recently, as the Circulation Sales Coordinator for The Door County Advocate, where she was responsible for marketing The Door County Advocate, Kewaunee County News, and Door County Magazine.
Stutting is active in the community as a member of The Noon Rotary Club of Sturgeon Bay, The Sturgeon Bay Moravian Church Choir and Altrusa of Door County. She also volunteers for many other organizations.
“I am thrilled at the opportunity to work for such a fine organization. Just think, world-renowned musicians, playing beautiful music in intimate settings, on a picturesque peninsula…it sounds more like heaven than a job,” Stutting chuckled. “I can’t wait to start speaking to different organizations and groups in order to educate more people about this unique treasure I’ve discovered in Door County.”
