Concert on the Square - Rhythm in Red, White & Blue

  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for our first trip to Concerts on the Square for 2013.  This annual event features free concerts on the Capitol Square lawn (King Street corner) for six consecutive weeks on Wednesday evenings.  Music is provided by the Madison Chamber Orchestra and a special Guest Artist.

The event for July 3rd will be an early celebration of the 4th of July.  For the annual Independence Day celebration, pianist Michael Mizrahi joins the orchestra for a rousing tribute to America, with tunes from an American classic, George Gershwin. We are proud to also give our Salute to Veterans, as we invite all of our veterans to stand as their theme for their branch of service is played during Lowden's Armed Forces Salute. There'll be Sousa of course...and by now, you know what our "booming" closing piece will be!

Someone from our group will be there early to save us some space on the lawn, so bring your lawn chairs or blankets and join us for music under the evening sky. We'll post our location during the afternoon, so recheck the site the day of the concert. Be there by 6:00 so we can chat and get settled before the music starts.  The concert starts at 7:00 pm.  Bring your own refreshments, or box lunches are available for sale by various vendors.

    Wow, lots of blankets down at the crack of 3:00!. Look for our balloon right across the street from the Glass Bank, but right up close to the Capitol steps. I am right in front of the orchestra, near the table seating.

    Apparently I can't save space until 3:00. I will be heading down to grab a spot right at 3:00, and will stay for the afternoon if anyone wants to join me early. Will be on the Pinckney St. side. Look for a white star-shaped ballon with FAB 40 written on it!

    I work downtown and will probably not go home before the concert. Do you need any help with setup?

    July 2, 2013

    • Nancy J.

      Thanks for the offer Sue. I'm planning to get there early afternoon to throw a tarp and blanket down to save space for us, then come back around 4:00. Not much to do, but you are welcome to join me early.
