For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD — The Vox Concert Series recently announced it has been nominated for the Governor’s Tourism, Arts, Culture & Heritage Award. The Governor’s Award recognizes people and organizations that have made a significant impact to the state’s travel industry.
“So thrilled for the recognition Vox is receiving for its important contribution and to all the communities it touches, geographical and musical. It was only a matter of time,” said singer and songwriter Mira Stanley of indie alternative group The Sea The Sea.
Vox was one of only 23 organizations across the state to be honored in a ceremony presented by Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch.
“It’s truly an honor to be recognized for our impact in the Marshfield area, but also statewide to be recognized amongst art centers and theaters is so significant. The Vox (Concert Series) has had the privilege to host great talent like Emerson Hart of Tonic, Sean Watkins of Nickel Creek, and many more from across the globe. This is proof we can support big city music with a small town vibe. We’re excited about our future plans to grow into a venue of our own and continue to serve as the source of high quality entertainment for music lovers in central Wisconsin,” said Brian Sauer, Vox Concert Series owner and manager.
“We have evolved from my original idea behind the concert series: to create a room within the community that could transform to host rock bands, blues, bluegrass, jazz, singer/songwriters, classical music, kids shows, and even comedy acts,” Sauer added.
The Vox Concert Series was established in 2004. Vox has transformed Wildwood Station Pavilion into a regional hot spot and continues to search for the top performers to bring to Marshfield.
