Caleb and Neil are taking in the amazing sounds of Concerts on the Square. They’re hanging with 30,000 other Madison residents while enjoying a catered dinner from Metcalfe’s Market.
What is Concerts on the Square?
Put on by the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, its a concert that is located on the lawn of the Wisconsin State Capitol building in downtown Madison, WI. They are on Wednesday evenings during the summer for eight weeks straight. Some call it the “Biggest Picnic Of Summer”.
What do the locals know?
You can start putting down blankets at 3:00pm the day of the concert. Most will arrive around 5pm to begin picnicking with friends and family. The concert starts at 7pm.
Parking is $8 at most ramps around the square.
There are food trucks on two blocks of the square, if you don’t want to bring a picnic.
Okay, back to Vlog…
Prior to the Concerts on the Square Neil and Caleb, were able to attend the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra season kickoff reception at Wisconsin Brewing Company. They interviewed Mark Cantrell (CEO) and Andrew Sewell (Music Director) to get a little background on the Concerts on the Square and what we can expect in the upcoming season.
Then it’s off to the Edgewater Hotel for a press conference hosted by Madison Area Sports Commission with a big announcement from the officials of the CrossFit Games! Such an exciting time for Madison! For more details on the CrossFit Games go here.
