Please join the LPC Board for our Annual Membership Meeting and Picnic at the beach. Chris Brown, our picnic chef, will be serving grilled brats, potato salad, and beverages.

Thank you for your 2018 membership support of La Pointe Center (LPC) for the Arts. We are hoping you will choose to become a member of our organization in 2018 and attend our membership meeting. Our by-laws state that every year we must have a membership meeting to inform our members of our finances and other business plans. We also need you as members to vote on the new Board Directors that have been selected. We need a quorum of 15 members. It has been challenging some years to get 15 folks together some Sundays afternoons. We are hoping that this special invitation and meeting notice rallies the crew! Your meeting participation is much needed and greatly appreciated.

Peg Bertel (chair), Susan Sabre (treasurer), Michele Auger, Chris Brown, Sally Brown, Leslie Mack, Micaela Montagne, and Carol Sowl.

Free Thursday Night Concert: Sam Miltich and the Clearwater Hot Club

Thursday, July 12, 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM
Harry Nelson Rec Center
Madeline Island, WI

“Sam is a musical genius, and he’s been
playing brilliant music for a long time.”
– Lowell Pickett, Dakota Jazz Club Owner

Sam Miltich is a self-taught jazz guitarist born and raised in the woods of northern Minnesota. Sam burst on the scene in his teens as a young lion of gypsy jazz, joining Paul Mehling’s Hot Club of San Francisco and touring internationally with the world-renowned Robin Nolan Trio. Sam’s fluid and instinctive sound has graced hundreds of stages, from small town bars on the Iron Range to Lincoln Center.

The Clearwater Hot Club is dedicated to preserving the repertoire and instrumentation of the Jazz Manouche style pioneered by Roma jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt. Much of the repertoire played in this group are songs either performed or written by Django Reinhardt, though other styles of music such as French Musette, Brazilian choro, and Eastern European folk music are interpreted through the musical lens and technique of the Jazz Manouche style. In recent years Sam Miltich has written original works of music in the jazz manouche style, giving credence to the roots and traditions of the music while bringing a fresh new voice to it.

Bring dinner, or grab a beer and brat at the show. Come enjoy music on Madeline!
