Allison grew up on the east side of Wauwatosa, and now is a musician and piano teacher who lives on the west side of Tosa with her husband Nick. She enjoys listening to live music, attending local arts events, baking and good wine.
Despite living in Tosa for most of my life, I had never once been inside the Wauwatosa Women's Club until this last weekend. The quintet I play with was there to provide some light music for an art auction/benefit for a local private school.
What a beautiful site! I had no idea! I'm still getting over how nice the place is - and how often I'd passed by that building on 76th and Milwaukee Ave. without a clue about what was inside.
They've got a great set-up for musicians, with a nice stage and grand piano available for use.
There are so many rooms, so many more than it appears that it might have from an outside glance. Click here for a photo tour of the building.
Also, there is a nicely outlined history page that tells about the orgins of the Women's Club and more information about the building.
Weddings and other special events are a big part of what they do, it seems. If you have neer been inside, at least check out their photo gallery and website. I hope to get in there to visit again some time soon!
