Music & Concerts

Founded in 1991 by members of the Glen Arbor Arts Center, Manitou Music takes place in the pastoral splendor of Leelanau County, in the Northwest corner of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula.

This “Land of Delight” has long attracted artists, writers, musicians and vacationers with its dramatic settings of towering dunes, pure inland lakes, lush hardwood and pine forests and the majesty of Lake Michigan. Manitou Music presents exciting and diverse concerts featuring national and regional performers of classical, jazz, and folk music in idyllic outdoor & family friendly locations.  See you this summer in Glen Arbor!
