Concert on the Green

A Day of Golf. An Evening of Music, Food & Fun.

We are so excited to welcome you back for our annual Concert on the Green in 2022! Registration for this event is now closed.

Concert on the Green is the MSOL’s most successful fundraiser, with proceeds benefiting the Education and Community Engagement Programs of the Madison Symphony Orchestra. These award-winning programs serve 25,000 people annually, ranging from elementary school children who discover the joy of music at the Symphony’s youth concerts, to seniors facing health challenges who experience the beauty and healing power of music played by a professional string quartet in their places of residence.

Health & Safety Information

There will be no proof of vaccination nor COVID testing required for this event. Please wear a mask as you feel is necessary for your safety. If you are not feeling well, have a fever, or known active COVID, please refrain from attending out of respect for everyone’s safety.

The weather for June 20th is predicted to be sunny and clear with a high of 93 and a low of 76 degrees. The wind will be a pleasant SSW 15 mph. Dress for the predicted heat with a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen.

Event Highlights

We are very excited to announce that Mike Leckrone, UW Band Director emeritus, will join our 2022 event as Honorary Golf Chair! Those who enjoy golf may start the day at Bishops Bay on the shores of beautiful Lake Mendota by participating in our annual golf tournament, which includes fabulous prizes. Professor Leckrone will be on the golf course throughout the day for photo opportunities.

The evening includes a cocktail hour, a private concert by the Madison Symphony Orchestra under a large lakeside tent, and a gourmet picnic dinner. The annual concert highlight is a stunning solo performance by Clark Snavely, the second-place winner of the MSO’s Bolz Young Artist Competition. Plus, as a special treat, Professor Leckrone will conduct one piece on the concert program.
