Baroque on Beaver, a classical music festival held on Beaver Island in Lake Michigan, is a presentation of the Beaver Island Cultural Arts Association.
The Baroque on Beaver classical music festival has grown from a single concert in 2001 to a week of performances by the Festival Orchestra and Chorus with internationally known soloists. Many of the participating musicians are either residents of Michigan or summer visitors to Beaver Island. All concerts, except the opening night gala benefit, are presented with no tickets or cost for attendance. The festival is supported by free will offerings and by donations from patrons on and off the island. In 2013 Baroque on Beaver celebrates 12 consecutive season of chamber music on Beaver Island.
