Schmitt Brothers Stage Dedication
Saturday, July 15, 2023 (All day)
The community is invited to attend the official dedication of the Schmitt Brothers Stage beginning at noon on July 15 in Two Rivers Central Park.
“It was in this very park that Two Rivers welcomed their hometown heroes after they won the SPEBSQSA title in 1951,” said former Mayor Jim Schmitt, son of the quartet’s lead singer. “If the quartet were alive today, they would be thrilled to hear the harmony of this wonderful celebration and see this city coming together to create and enjoy this beautiful park.”
Events include a ribbon-cutting ceremony by officials and family members followed by a barbershop show featuring a dozen award-winning quartets and choruses. In addition, an anonymously donated replica of the medal won by the quartet will be presented to the Two Rivers Historical Society for their display of Schmitt Brothers memorabilia.
During the event, civic organizations will sponsor a variety of food and snack stands, the Cool City Brewing Company will offer a special edition brew for the occasion, and the Two Rivers Historical Society will scoop ice cream cones in the park and serve sundaes at the nearby Washington House Museum to honor the invention of the sweet dairy treat in Two Rivers. P.T. Rivers, author of “The Schmitt Brothers,” will autograph copies of the book. The public will also be invited to sit in a vintage convertible or park bench to have photos taken with the Schmitt Brothers. The barbershop show will be followed by an afterglow beginning at 7 p.m. at the J. E. Hamilton Community House, across the street from the park.
