Baroque on Beaver is a joyful series of concerts offered each summer on Beaver Island, Michigan. Concerts include orchestral, choral, solo, and chamber ensemble, featuring professional performers. The performances focus on classical music, but you may hear jazz, popular, Broadway, spirituals, or whatever strikes the musicians’ fancy. “BonB” celebrates its 14th season in 2015, running from July 24th through August 2nd. Presented by the Beaver Island Cultural Arts Association. With the exception of benefit concerts, admission to Festival programs is open to the general public without charge and a free-will offering is gratefully appreciated and accepted at all events which makes a difference in our ability to provide quality programing.
