    It is with heavy hearts that we have made the decision to postpone the 2020-21 Wartmann Artist Series and the Salute to Glen Campbell performance. Due to Covid-19 and the reality that Rock County is still under Phase 2 of reopening, we would be required to socially distance 6 feet between parties and that would reduce our seating capacity from 598 to 144. Some concerts have surpassed this total in ticket sales, and would need to be postponed and rescheduled at a time when we can accommodate full capacity. Ticket sales help pay our expenses, and this loss of seats would translate into a deficit of over $72,000 plus an additional loss of $20,000 from the Wartmann Endowment.

    We are working with our artists to reschedule their performances for the 2021-22 season. If you have purchased tickets they will carry over to the rescheduled dates, so hold on to them. If you prefer to receive a refund, mail your tickets – and a note with your name and address on it -- to:

    Edgerton School District

    Attn: WEpac / Michele Smrecek

    200 Elm High Drive

    Edgerton, WI 53534

    Again, we are saddened to have to make this decision as we were looking forward to these performances. However, keeping you safe and well so you can attend future performances must be a priority.

    Sincerely,

    The WEpac Board

    Tusk a Fleetwood Mac Experience 

    POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19

    Rescheduled date to be determined 

    No fancy tricks, no gimmicks, just five musicians recreating the music of Fleetwood Mac to perfection with note for note renditions that no other Fleetwood Mac tribute on the touring scene today can come close to duplicating.

    Tusk covers all the great hits of Fleetwood Mac, which has featured the talents of Mick Fleetwood, Christine and John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks and others over the years. The five seasoned, well-respected musicians comprising Tusk have been making music together in various combinations and styles, in original outfits and in cover bands, for over 25 years. It seemed only fitting that they should come together to form the Ultimate Fleetwood Mac tribute and pay homage to a group that dominated the charts during the band members’ formative years. Authentic-sounding and always respectful, Tusk leaves no stone unturned in replicating the sounds of one of the world’s best-loved, top-selling bands.

    Prague Orchestra

     

    The Prague Symphony Orchestra

    POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19

    Rescheduled date to be determined 

    The Prague Symphony Orchestra is the official orchestra of the capital city Prague. The orchestra is a leading Czech musical ensemble with an established and renowned international reputation. It contributes significantly to the concert scene in the Czech capital and at the same time promotes Czech culture abroad. The orchestra was founded in 1934 and was originally named FOK, Film Opera Koncert, which were the ensemble's original focuses. By recording music for the majority of Czech films in the 1930s and performing regularly in live broadcasts on the Czechoslovak Radio, the FOK Orchestra made a name for itself and its economic existence was assured. This allowed the gradual development of regular concerts, whose main promoter from the very beginning was Dr. Václav Smetáček.

    Within a very short time Dr. Smetáček managed to build the orchestra into a large symphonic ensemble, challenging the standards of its strong domestic competition. In 1942 he became the orchestra’s chief conductor and he stood as its head for a full thirty years. During the period of his leadership the orchestra achieved a high performance standard and international renown.

    In 1952, the City of Prague granted the FOK Orchestra status as the representative orchestra of the city. The traditional acronym “FOK” was retained, and the new title of the orchestra became Symphony Orchestra of the Capital City of Prague – FOK. In 1957 the orchestra departed on its first foreign tour – to Poland, Italy, Austria, and Germany – and thus inaugurated its regular and intensive engagement on the international scene.

    The Orchestra is currently under the direction of Chief Conductor Tomas Brauner. Brauner has performed many works with the Prague Symphony Orchestra including Dvorak's Symphony No. 7, Stabat mater, Slavonic Dances, Rusalka - fantasy, Smetana's My Country, Suk' Asrae, and other works. In 2018 Brauner toured with the Prague Symphony Orchestra in Munich (Rachmaninoff: Piano Concert No. 2 and No. 3) and in Poznan (Smetana: My Country).

    Neil Diamond

    “I am…He said” – A Neil Diamond Celebration

    POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19

    Rescheduled date to be determined 

    "We are saying what HE said,” laughs Matt Vee referring to the one and only Neil Diamond. Matt, along with cousins Jeff and Tommy Vee, sons of the legendary Bobby Vee, join forces with their family and friends as The Killer Vees to celebrate the music from a timeless catalog. With songs like "Cracklin' Rosie," "Song Sung Blue," and "Sweet Caroline,” Neil Diamond sold over 100 million records worldwide. “This is not a tribute show,” says Tommy Vee. “This is a celebration of an amazing musical icon, one we all love and respect.”

    “Matt is the perfect Neil Diamond, and the band was killer…so good, so good, so good! We will definitely present this show again.

    Thanks Vee Boys!” Terry Meyer Matier/Big Top Chautauqua, Bayfield, WI.

    “Celebrate the Music of Neil Diamond” is truly a celebration! This is music that we all know and love performed by incredible musicians and singers. If you’re looking for a performance that will lift spirits and create energy, this is it!”

    The Forgotten Kingdom - Sand Stories with Kseniya Simonova

    POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19

    Rescheduled date to be determined 

    The Guy Mendilow Ensemble is "an international tour de force” (Bethlehem Morning Call) from the Middle East, South and North America. The Ensemble combines musicianship with cinematic storytelling in shows that “explode with artistry, refinement and excitement” (Hebrew Union College), whisking audiences to distant times and picturesque places, conjuring voices lost to upheaval, to spark personal connections with the stories of ordinary people living through extraordinary times of change. These visceral dimensions from long-ago-and-far-away resonate today, inspiring questions about our own struggles and dilemmas. The Ensemble draws on traditional tunes, techniques and tales, but in elegant arrangements and with radical reframing.

    International sand art superstar Kseniya Sunonova (US premiere) and the Ensemble team up in The Forgotten Kingdom, an extraordinary multi-media show bringing to life Sephardi women’s voices lost to war. Simonova creates, morphs and obliterates sand imagery, crafting a flowing narrative driven by the Ensemble's evocative music and radio drama-style storytelling. Audiences traverse breathtaking landscapes of sand, from ruined Ottoman villages to bustling Mediterranean ports like Salónica circa 1944. The Ensemble adds a sweeping, cinematographic score drawing on traditional tunes, techniques and tales but in elegant arrangements and with radical reframing.
