On Thursday, September 1, visitors to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (National Lakeshore) can listen to classical guitarist and composer Lukas Krolikowski at the Platte River Campground Amphitheater. Krolikowski will be performing from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m., and the concert is free with a park pass.
Krolikowski will present a program featuring original works written and inspired by northwestern Michigan and Sleeping Bear Dunes, as well as a few traditional pieces from his classical guitar repertoire.
In August of 2015, Krolikowski quit his teaching job in central Illinois, and moved with his wife Renée and their cat Boris to the Traverse City area. The pieces that will be performed during the concert were written during this transition.
All concerts are free with a park pass. Passes may be purchased at the Phillip A. Hart Visitor Center in Empire, Michigan, and cost $15 (per vehicle) for seven days, or $30 for an annual pass.
