A Musical Journey through Door County for Midsummer’s Music Festival’s 21st Season

Midsummer’s Music will perform 21 chamber music concerts between June 10th and July 17th as a part of its 2011 Festival Season. ‘A Musical Journey’ is the way this season is being characterized, and that refers to both a musical exploration and the opportunity to investigate and enjoy some of Door County’s most beautiful sites. “Musically speaking, we are covering a lot of territory,” said Jim Berkenstock, Artistic Director of Midsummer’s Music. “Our performances will draw on some splendid examples of music from Norway, Russia, Spain, France, Germany, Austria, Denmark, and the U.S.

UUFDC will host the June 24th performance, 7:30 pm, titled FRENCH AFFECTIONS.
