The Lakeshore Wind Ensemble honors late LWE founding member and contributor to the arts in our community, Dennis Kosloski, with the Wesley Teply Community Service Award in the Arts. He played for 40 years with the Lakeshore Wind Ensemble as first chair clarinet and concert master. We welcome back to the Capitol stage, Manitowoc native and Kosloski’s daughter, Emily Kosloski, Los Angeles-based singer and television actress singing “I Dreamed a Dream” and “Bring Him Home” from Les Misérables and Ave Maria by Bach-Gounod and Someone to Watch Over Me by George and Ira Gershwin.

The ensemble also remembers foreign tours to Manitowoc’s Sister City, Kamogawa, Japan, which is celebrating 30 years of friendship, by playing music given to the ensemble, Super Mario Bros. Also in the concert line-up is a medley from the Japanese fantasy film My Neighbor Totoro, which is wildly popular in Japan.
