      | On-Site Discographies | Wisconsin Music Site Map |

      This is a list of Wisconsin cities with Schools, Churches or other local organizations that have released recordings in the formats noted. There are four musicals, several various artists collections of Folk/Pop/Rock music, and most of the rest are Christmas albums. All recordings by those listed are, or will be, documented on this Web site.

      This list does not include the names of venues, individual musicians and recorded groups which are not "directly" connected to a School, Church or organization.
      | Selection by City Name |

      Please write if you have details about any other Wisconsin Schools, Churches or organizations who have released a recording since 1948, and where they can be purchased.

      (yyyy) or (yyyy-yyyy) = release date of the only known recording, or first and last known recording dates. Those marked "-date" are still releasing recordings on an annual or otherwise frequent basis.

There are 44 cities and 106 different schools and churches listed below.
