2021 LIVE STREAM Performances

Start your weekend with a live concert performed in one of Madison’s most unique venues. The 2021 Canopy Sessions will be live-streamed from the Bolz Conservatory so you can get down right groovy in the comfort of your own home.

At this time, Olbrich Gardens is unable to sell tickets for in-person performances, so we encourage viewers to support local musicians directly by donating via the links provided in the live-stream.

Canopy Sessions will be live streamed on Olbrich Gardens' Facebook.
