Write On is happy to continue our collaboration with Midsummer’s Music, Poetry Meets Music. At one concert in each of Midsummer’s series offerings, a poet will read a poem written in response to a piece of music to be performed. Poets were given recordings in advance with no identifying information as to the title, composer, era, etc., and were asked not to look up this information. The result is a poem composed entirely in response to the emotions or memories the music evokes. 

For tonight’s concert, we are pleased to present poet Allison Haus. Tonight’s concert is Mozart, Mendelssohn, and Magic.  To order tickets, please visit Midsummer’s Music

Allison Haus grew up in Middleton, WI, longing for summer to arrive so she could get back to grandma’s cabin on Garrett Bay. The lake, big bluffs, and nearby family inspired the move to Door County five years ago. Allison is a geochemist and professional geologist who works remotely as an environmental consultant and lives in Sturgeon Bay with her four sons and husband. When not otherwise occupied at the fraternity house, Allison loves to read, write poetry and prose, play piano, plan family adventures, and go hiking in the woods.
