Midsummer's Music

Celebrating our 30th anniversary and Beethoven’s 250th birthday! Midsummer’s Music is adapting our season to share musical joy by presenting virtual concerts starting in August. The acclaimed summer chamber music series mini- season will be free, and the schedule will be available at www.midsummersmusic.com and on Midsummer’s Facebook page. Virtual lobbies, receptions, coffee chats and special events will give audiences unique ways to hear from our Artistic Director Jim Berkenstock, Executive Director Allyson Fleck, and wonderful Midsummer’s musicians who join us each summer from the Chicago Symphony, Chicago’s Lyric Opera, Milwaukee Symphony, Aspen Music Festival, China National Symphony, and the Ravinia Festival, among others.
