Most people are surprised when they learn that Yo-Yo Ma has performed here or that we have a nationally cast Shakespeare festival and a month-long Beethoven Festival. They think it’s weird when they learn this town of 27,000 also has an art museum filled with masters like Picasso, Monet, and Van Gogh, or that we have a series of huge music festivals that draw thousands, or one of the country’s best doughnuts. Any one of those things in a town would be cool. But when you consider that all of that greatness is here in one charming river city, well, we understand why people think it is surprising and kind of weird. When people ask how that all ended up here, we say that’s just Winona – Surprisingly Weird but incredibly entertaining, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
