Restoring Oconomowoc’s Orchestral History

The Chatfield instruments were donated to the 
Oconomowoc Area School District by Frank Chatfield
in 1937. They were comprised of two violins, one viola 
and a cello. Chatfield, a long-time city planner for 
Oconomowoc, took up the hobby of building and repairing 
stringed instruments, most notably, violins, violas and cellos.

He harvested wood for his instruments from trees in the
Lac La Belle area, and 
some of that wood, which still exists,
will be used to repair the instruments. The 
instruments were used by students for several decades
they fell into disrepair and were eventually put in

In 2015 OHS Principal Joseph Moylan had a decision to make,
whether to dispose 
of the instruments or preserve them. He chose to
save the instruments, to save the instruments, but not 
just for  museum status.
After consulting renowned luthier, Scott Sleider of 
Wauwatosa, it was
determined that the instrument could be restored to playing condition.

The first instrument to be completed will be the cello in early 2018 with the
others to follow shortly thereafter. 
The four instruments will be featured in a
special concert in late spring of 2018 at the conclusion of the 
OAC 10th
anniversary season.

By Arthur Miller

7:30 p.m. May 4-6
2 p.m. May 6 

The year is 1692. Evil is lurking within
the devout community of Salem,
Massachusetts, and no one is beyond
suspicion. A farmer, his distraught wife,
and a dangerous young woman are caught
in a flash of hysteria that forces them all to
face the ultimate test.

Based on the Salem Witch Trials and
serving as an allegory to the infamous
Red Scare of the McCarthyera 1950s,
Arthur Miller’s masterpiece remains
one of the most powerful and thrilling
plays of our time. Never before has this
play felt more relevant--as accusations
are thrown, religion is defended and the
end results prove how very little we seem
to have learned from our past. The Crucible
is not-to-bemissed, pulse-racing,
theatrical magic!

The Accidental Hero is a multi-media one

Lt. Colonel Matt Konop was from
Stangelville, Wisconsin, a town  near

It’s a true story, written and performed by
his grandson, Patrick Dewane. This heart
warming tale of miraculous escapes spans
the gamut of tears to laughs, survival and
coincidence. The show  utilizes found
treasures including vintage video, photos,
sound clips and writings that were once
stored in a basement and are brought to life! 

Musical Tribute to the Songs of WWII

the pure, sweet harmonies of The Radio
Rosies recall the nostalgia and
enchantment of jazz, boogie-woogie and
swing. Charming  songs such as
“Sugartime,” “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree”
and “In the Mood” will really spin
your hat, while old wartime tunes "We'll
Meet Again” and “Apple Blossom
Time” will remind you of times when
sweethearts waited for their soldiers to
come home.

Join us for a night of reminiscence and
timeless delight as The Radio Rosies
perform the unforgettable numbers from
the ‘30s, ‘40s and ‘50s.
