Concerts on the Square will celebrate its 40th season on the Capitol Square from June 28 to Aug. 2.
The Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra‘s outdoor concert series, a Madison summer tradition for many, will take place at 7 p.m. Wednesdays with guest artists on the King Street corner of the Square.
Scheduled themes this year are “¡Viva Tiempo Libre!,” June 28; “Contrastes,” July 5; “A Wisconsin Celebration,” July 12; “Romeo and Juliet Fantasy,” July 19; “A Millennial Mixtape: That’s My Jam!,” July 26; and “Journey Through Time,” Aug. 2.
Concerts are free and draw tens of thousands of people, often with blankets and picnic baskets for suppers on the Capitol lawn. Food carts that ring the Square also sell food and beverages.
