Mad about Madeline: The Arianna Quartet loves its summer home at Madeline Island Chamber Music

And Madeline Island loves its chamber music. After all, what's not to love? This summer classic brings world-class ensembles to this idyllic Lake Superior getaway for a month of concerts. And when they're not performing, they're teaching talented college and high school musicians to become next generation of great artists. Classical MPR's John Birge caught up with the Arianna Quartet after their 17th summer on Madeline Island, performing, mentoring and — we hope — goofing off a bit too! No better place for that.
