MADISON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA LEAGUE'S CONCERT ON THE GREEN
CONCERT ON THE GREEN 2014
IS ON MONDAY, JUNE 13!
Bishops Bay Country Club, located on Lake Mendota, is one of the area's most scenic sites for a day of golf. It's the perfect spot for an enchanting evening cocktail party, a concert and a gourmet picnic (served lakeside!) Bishops Bay Country Club
is located at 3500 Bishops Drive in Middleton.
The golf tournament is a "two man best ball" competition with your foursome. You'll pick up a delicious box lunch as you set out for your round of golf. There's a prize for best team score and challenges on each hole with prizes offered.
Satisfy your senses! The immaculate grounds of Bishops Bay overlooking Lake Mendota set the stage for an enchanting cocktail party complete with hors d'oeuvres and a complimentary signature drink. Relax and enjoy your old and new friendships with morsels from a delicious array of savory delicacies prepared by the chef at Bishops Bay, along with your favorite libation from the cash bar.
Have a seat in our airy lakeside tent for a concert of light classics performed by members of the Madison Symphony Orchestra under the baton of John DeMain. Harpist Chloé Tula, one of the winners of the 2013 Bolz Young Artist Competition Final Forte, will be our guest soloist. The program includes Suppé's Light Cavalry Overture, the first movement from Bizet's Symphony No. 1, the first movement from Gliere's Concerto for Harp and Orchestra, the third movement from Copland's Tender Land Suite, the waltz from Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty and Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2.
You'll enjoy an elegant gourmet picnic, served by the exceptional staff at Bishops Bay. After dinner, adjourn to the Club House for after-dinner drinks and more conversation. The Menu includes grilled hanger steak with red potato salad and lemon dressing; and herb roasted chicken breast with orzo, cucumber and cherry tomato Greek salad. A vegetarian option is available, substituting grilled Portabella mushrooms for the steak and chicken. Please contact the MSOL at 608.260.8680 x232 to order a vegetarian meal option.
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
In the event of rain, the cocktail party, concert and picnic will proceed as scheduled in the shelter of our lakeside tent. Golfers who are signed up and paid can play at their convenience at Bishops Bay.
