Since its founding in 1979 the Green Lake Festival of Music has proudly presented world-class artists from throughout the U.S. and abroad.  We offer three major areas of programming: The concert series, including free family concerts, the two-week Green Lake Chamber Music Camp, and the four-day Choral Institute.  

Audiences love the intimate and relaxed nature of performances at the historic Thrasher Opera House in Green Lake, Wisconsin and in Demmer Hall at Rodman Auditorium at Ripon College.  The GLFM boasts a reputation of discovering rising stars and featuring artistic talent of the highest quality.

The Green Lake Festival of Music, a nonprofit 501 c 3 organization, is joining a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on December 1, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
