What an amazzzzzzing year of artists you've assembled! I've got at LEAST 4 more I'm rather sure I'll be attending! Thanks so much to ALL of you at the Thrasher for bringing this incredible array of uber talented folks to come here and touch our hearts, feed our souls and lift our spirits. It's a very special gift and I am eternally grateful.

The Thrasher opera House is a lovely restored building lovingly sponsored and cared for by a group of active volunteers. It features a wonderful variety of programs year round as well as offers space to the local town for weddings, children's programs and plays. It has wonderful acoustics. It is a wonderful asset this beautiful community in the heart of Wisconsin. The Green lake Festival of Misic also uses this great space for most of its performances during the summer. I am on the board of the Festival and have been a volunteer for the Thrasher since the early days of its restoration. It is a very special place that gives everyone more richness in their lives.

The Thrasher Opera House is a 'gem' serving a very broad community in this Central Wisconsin area. Although the non profit organization is managed by very loyal and supportive volunteers and a small staff tickets are purchased by people throughout Wisconsin and many other states. Those attendees travel significant distances to follow their favorite performer(s) and the small city of Green Lake comes alive as they also patronize motels, hotels, restaurants and shops. What a profound change this has made in our community! Certainly all arts should be supported in both down and up economic conditions.
