The first members of the original Madison Brass Band, founded in 1863, were businessmen, cobblers, cigar-makers, stone-cutters, and a saloon proprietor. Only one member was a professional musician. The band went into remission for many years until the early 2000’s when it revitalized its mission to bring the great British and American brass band tradition back to the greater Madison area. In addition to concerts, festivals and many events in southern Wisconsin, MBB has also performed twice at the Grand Celebration of Brass Bands in Iowa. (more…)

The meticulously restored Stoughton Opera House is one of Wisconsin’s premiere live music theaters.
After a holiday respit the Opera House comes to life again with Pro Arte Quartet on January 23rd.
The Pro Arte Quartet has enjoyed a long and distinguished career as one of the most enduring string quartets in existence. Founded in Brussels in 1912 by violinist Alphonse Annou and violist Germain Prevost, the Pro Arte became the court quartet to Queen Elisabeth of Belgium. Its world reputation soared with a European tour in 1919, earning the group such outstanding acclaim that many composers – including Bartok, Milhaud, and Honegger – composed new works for the Pro Arte. In 1940, stranded in the United States by the outbreak of World War II, the University of Wisconsin-Madison offered the Quartet the position of Artist-in-Residence, which continues to the present day.
Current members, David Perry and Suzanne Beia, violins, Sally Chisholm, viola, and Parry Karp, cello, have continued the Pro Arte legacy.
“The Pro Arte Quartet plays all very demanding music with perfect sympathy and superb musicianship…” (American Record Guide)
