Thrasher promises exceptional line-up for Fall Concert Series
It may be bit difficult to think ahead to Fall when we’re just beginning to enjoy the warmth and beauty of another glorious Wisconsin summer – but Thrasher has a line-up of artists for their Fall Concert Series far too exciting to keep under wraps until then!
The historic Thrasher Opera House, in beautiful downtown Green Lake, has selected three outstanding concerts for the 2003 Series, each boasting a uniquely different and distinguished musical style. Tickets are now available – and based on the popularity of the 2002 Series – you might want to think ahead to Fall – if only for enough time to secure your tickets!
The Series will begin with a performance by Corky Siegel’s Chamber Blues at 7:30 pm on October 3. For almost 4 decades, critics like; Rolling Stone, Stereophile, Down Beat, Billboard, Jazziz, New York Times and Washington Post, recognized Corky Siegel as a “phenomenal virtuoso on harmonica… a deft accomplished genius of the Blues.” Today, Siegel’s classical/blues blend draws a new generation of concertgoers. Although the sound is not exclusive to jazz, classical, blues, or world music, it does reveal a unique exploration of those genres, opening the minds and souls of those who listen.
Harmonious Wail will be bringing their gypsy swing style to the stage at Thrasher on November 15 at 7:30 pm. This acoustic string quartet with tight vocal harmonies fuses gypsy swing, 40’s era swing & jump, swing & jazz standards and originals, inspired by such artists as the great gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt.
And for the Christmas holidays, we are happy to announce the return of George Winston to Green Lake. Winston will perform on December 20 at 7:30 pm, and as typical with all of his concerts, the audience is asked to please support their local Food Pantry by bringing a donation of a non-perishable food item or monetary donation along with them.
The Fall Concert Series, sponsored in part by the Heidel House and Green Lake State Bank, can be purchased at the Thrasher Opera House office (next to the Opera House) for the discounted price of $70. Individual tickets for Corky Siegel will be available after September1, with individual tickets for Harmonious Wail and George Winston after September 16, for $25 each. ON-LINE ticket sales are also now available at www.thrasheroperahouse.com, or you can call the office at 920-294-4279 or 888-441-0140.
