Nonprofits of the Northwoods: The Homegrown Concert Series


The pandemic has posed a serious challenge for artists and musicians everywhere.

That’s why WXPR has partnered with Nicolet College and ArtStart to present a project called “Working from Home” to support and share the work of local artists.

One part of that project is the Homegrown Concert Series. Every Sunday evening, local musicians perform on Nicolet’s stage.

Listen to the full interview with Nicolet’s Mike Effinger to learn more about what working on this project has been like.

WXPR’s Nonprofits of the Northwoods spotlights organizations in our area that are working to strengthen the community – whether that’s by lending a hand to someone in need, educating about the arts, or caring for the environment.

Erin Gottsacker worked at WXPR as a Morning Edition host and reporter from December 2020 to January 2023. During her time at the station, Erin reported on the issues that matter most in the Northwoods.
