Snapshots of Wisconsin creates musical pictures of the Wisconsin countryside, the state's unique European heritage and its drive to be a national leader. "Northern Woods and Lakes" depicts the beautiful northern part of the state and its year-round recreational opportunities. "Alpine Valley Waltz" celebrates the European immigrants, especially the Swiss, who settled in the lush, green valleys in the southern section of the state. And every citizen feels Wisconsin State Pride when celebrating the accomplishments of the collegiate and professional athletes and the important role they have played in the diversity and growth of the state. "Northern Woods and Lakes" was selected for the Federation Festivals 2011-2013.
