The Pro Arte Quartet, members of the Wingra Wind Quintet, and bassist David Scholl perform Schubert’s magnificent Octet in F major, D. 803, on the Searl Pickett Series in Fond du Lac.
Now in its 22nd season, the Searl Pickett Chamber Music Series features some of the best professional music ensembles in Wisconsin and the Midwest. The Series was founded by Fond du Lac native Kay Gainacopulos as a tribute to, and in memory of one of Wisconsin’s finest music educators. Searl Pickett taught clarinet lessons privately and at the college level, and he was the band director at St. Marys Springs Academy until his death in 1981.
Single tickets are $20 and will be sold at the door. Season tickets at $45 for all four concerts will also be available at the first two concerts. Students are admitted free.
