Wisconsin Life: The Upbeat

Unable to perform live due to the COVID-19 pandemic, cello player Hans Christian engineered a different way to perform. He hoisted his cello 25 feet up inside the historic 118-year-old Teweles & Brandeis Granary building in Sturgeon Bay to play a concert on Facebook Live.
“It was terrifying,” said Christian. “Once I found a space that was large enough where I could put a chair and sit down without falling into one of the big grain bins, I was okay.”
He did the concert in conjunction with the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society.
