Distinguished Guest Series
75 Years of Giving Voice to the Arts
In 1944, Kohler Women's Club established the Distinguished Guest Series - bringing lecturers like Admiral Richard Byrd, Pearl S. Buck, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale and Hedda Hopper to the Waelderhaus in Kohler. In the 1950's, Kohler Foundation took over the tradition, and the Distinguished Guest Series evolved into a full-fledged performing arts series, featuring internationally recognized performers in theatre, dance, and music, providing world-class entertainment at accessible prices. The tradition continues today, with the biggest names and the brightest stars performing in Kohler, for the benefit of our community. Among the many talented artists, the Distinguished Guest Series has featured over the years are: Maya Angelou, the Ten Tenors, the Russian National Ballet, STOMP, Wynton Marsalis, Itzhak Perlman, Audra McDonald, Yo-Yo Ma, Kristin Chenoweth and Leslie Odom Jr.
