Oct. 14 - Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, 7:30 p.m.
A popular guest in previous visits to Lakeland, the MSO makes a triumphant return to get the KFAS series started on a wonderful note. Andrew Massey, newly-appointed MSO Resident Conductor, will lead the group, which has been turning heads and making significant new strides under the leadership of popular Music Director Andreas Delfs.
The program at Lakeland is tentatively scheduled to include the prelude to Wagner's opera "Die Meistersinger," Richard Strauss' tone poem "Don Juan" and Tchaikovsky's orchestral Suite No. 3.
The MSO is in its 46th season, and is the largest cultural organization in Wisconsin. The only professional orchestra in the state with 88 full-time musicians, the MSO has consistently received critical acclaim for artistic excellence. Under Delfs, the orchestra has reached new heights, and has received rave reviews for performances while on tour in Europe, Japan, Cuba and New York's Carnegie Hall.
At home and on tour, the MSO performs over 150 Classics, Pops, Family and School concerts annually.
Nov. 17 - Paul Winter, 7:30 p.m.
Paul Winter blends the sounds of extraordinary creatures such as whales, wolves and eagles with the widely-diverse instruments of many cultures.
Winter is an award-winning saxophonist, bandleader, composer and producer of "Living Music" and the "Paul Winter Consort." Traveling on rafts, mules, dog sleds, horses and tugboats, he has amazed audiences in over 37 countries on six continents, including the White House in 1962, in a career that has earned him four Grammy Awards and six Grammy nominations.
Winter claims his unique creation of musical-ecologically, which he likes to call "the greater symphony of the Earth," gives people "a sense of community - a sense of the whole wide community of life, which is one of the best things we could do with our music."
Feb. 14 - Chris Cramer, 11 a.m.
Hear the self-motivation and discipline that, in a short period of time, have led Chris Cramer to a notable music career.
Beginning at the University of Wisconsin-Manitowoc at the age of 19, Cramer studied music theory and history, while also participating in the choir and playing guitar in the UW-Manitowoc Big Band. Cramer completed his undergraduate degree at UW-Milwaukee and the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music where he earned a first place in the annual WCM scholarship competition in classical guitar.
Cramer has performed at the John Michael Kohler Fine Arts Center, the Manitowoc Capitol Civic Center, the Monroe Street Fine Arts Center, the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music, UW-Manitowoc and UW-Madison, where he is currently studying in the doctorate program in music performance.
April 8 - Pro Arte Quartet, 7:30 p.m.
Experience the depths of chamber music with one of the world's distinguished string quartets.
In addition to their residency at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where duties range from formal concerts and radio broadcasts to a variety of educational activities, Pro Arte tours nationally and internationally, often presenting premieres of new works, many of which are written for the ensemble.
Formerly the Court Quartet for Queen Elizabeth in 1912, Pro Arte is backed by a 90-year tradition. The group made a debut tour of New York in 1926, followed by 30 more tours to the U.S., while under the patronage of Mrs. Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge. The quartet made Madison its home after being stranded in the U.S. after the breakout of World War II.
Comprised of violinists David Perry and Suzanne Beia, violist Sally Chisholm and cellist Parry Karp, the group has had close collaborations with notable composers over the decades such as Bela Bartok, Darius Milhaud, Arthur Honegger, and Samuel Adler, while also recording on several labels.
