Concerts on the Square 40th Anniversary Gala
To celebrate the 40th Season of Concerts on the Square, the WCO presents Concerts & Cuisine on March 19th, 5:00 PM at the Madison Concourse Hotel. Featuring 25 chefs, brewers, vintners, and distillers competing for best signature dish or drink, attendees can expect to experience a "full" evening of everything we love about Concerts on the Square – the ambiance, the atmosphere, and the community that had made this tradition what it is today.
A special thank you to our co-chairs Susan and Jonathan Lipp!

40 Years, No Rests
Building the Community Beat
Forty years of meaningful music. Pleasant Rowland founded it, Madison embraced it, and the attendees, supporters, and sponsors continued it. Each summer, Madisonians have been reveling in live music through Concerts on the Square – coming as they are – experiencing live classical music in a unique atmosphere. Each concert and season is made up of not only the music, but all of the individual elements that come together, allowing for an authentic experience that can never be replicated. It doesn’t matter if you know classical music or not, Concerts on the Square is place where everyone is welcome to engage in the art of the orchestra.
