Who Are We

Who We Are

Pierce Hill Performing Arts is a 501(c)3 non-profit musically diverse organization, presenting events of variety throughout the summer. These concerts run the gamut from chamber folk to progressive Americana roots to classical chamber music to jazz. All groups share one thing in common – they embody artistic excellence.

Our Mission

Pierce Hill Performing Arts' principal objectives are:

  • To present musicians of artistic excellence to rural Southwestern Wisconsin;

  • To provide scholarships for serious young musicians of merit and financial need for private lessons and summer music camps; and

  • To maintain beautiful grounds that are welcoming and attractive to all families which the music experience is enhanced by a beautiful environment.

Our Location

We are perched on a beautiful ridge in Vernon County, Viroqua, Wisconsin. The address to our venue is:  S4706 Orchard Rd, Viroqua, Wisconsin 


When you arrive you will be instructed where to park your car along the driveway. After parking you will walk a short distance down the driveway to the performance venue, The Barn.
