“Just the best”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

This past year at Concerts was the best! We like to go with a group of people and socialize with the music being in the background so we position ourselves away from the crowd. The variety of food, restaurants and outdoor seating is incredible. Once the music stops it's hard to go home!

“a wonderful summer evening experience”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Have been going to these concerts for years now with either family, friends or both. Working downtown I have an advantage to getting a prime location, but any spot on the Capitol lawn will be good for hearing the music. It is always fun to see what people bring for their picnics, from very casual to quite elaborate. A must-do if you are in Madison on a Wed evening from late June - mid August.

“So awesome”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Great place to sit outside, enjoy the warm weather, listen to nice music, and nosh a bit. You can even put your blanket down at 3pm (or earlier!) to save your spot, and no one will mess with it!

“The place to be on summer Wednesday evenings!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

So many people attend these free outdoor concerts that it seems everyone in Madison (and beyond) is here on balmy summer evenings. Despite the packed Wisconsin Capitol grounds, there's always space to spread your blanket and have a summer picnic while enjoying the music of the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra. Even if you can't see the musicians, the sound system is great and the performances are superb. There's nothing better on a Wednesday summer evening in Madison!

“Good music and people watching in a great venue”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

This is a good summertime activity and a nice way to get together with friends for a little wine and food before the music on the beautiful Capitol lawn. Not a place for purists -- people will talk and walk around when the music is playing -- just enjoy it for what it is. Kick back, bring a camp chair and enjoy the evening.
