Monk Gardens, Wausau, WI
Fischer Family Jazz is made of Geoffrey Fischer on bass, Lucas Fischer on drums, Amanda Fischer on reeds, and Michael Fischer on piano. The ensemble plays a wide variety of jazz music ranging from the energetic and Latin rhythms of Chick Corea and Michel Camillo to the familiar traditional swing music of Duke Ellington, and Count Basie. The afternoon will feature diverse styles to create a festive and fun atmosphere--a joyful, yet relaxed way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Michael is a local pastor who has performed around the country with jazz and Gospel music groups. He has several solo recordings of his own and has recorded with a number of others, most recently on a Spring 2014 release by the ACME Jazz Company, a big band based in Minneapolis, MN.

The KIDS from Wisconsin are returning to Edgar on Wednesday, Aug. 20 at 7:00pm. While new to some people from Edgar when they visited us last August, the KIDS were organized in 1969 and have traveled the State each summer performing at many fairs, conventions and festivals. Annually these talented, young people from across Wisconsin audition for this popular group. The concert theme may change each year but the singing and dancing skills remain incredible. Tickets are $20 each. Reserved seating is again available through; search Edgar or KIDS from Wisconsin. Depending on advanced sales, remaining seats for general admission tickets may be available but a sellout crowd is expected.
