Sigmund Snopek and Michael Woods “Christmas and Beyond” at the Holiday Music Motel - Sturgeon Bay, WI - December 11th, 2013, 7pm
This December 11th at 7pm marks the 3rd annual Sigmund Snopek “Christmas and Beyond...” house concert at The Holiday Music Motel in Sturgeon Bay. This year, Sigmund will be joined by Emily Wolersberger (vocals), Denice Goetsh (oboe) and multi-instrumentalist Michael Woods who will also be celebrating the launch of his new CD “Burning Trees.”
Multi-dimensional, multi-faceted, or perhaps more accurately, a man of multi-musical-personalities, Snopek’s 30+year history as composer and performer quickly shifts gears from Rock to Prog to Pop to serious Art Music and back again (sometimes all at once.) He has toured the world extensively with The Violent Femmes and is hailed as one of the country’s top Avant Garde composers. Snopek’s original works have been featured by many renowned performing groups including The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and Present Music.
Snopek’s inspired career was recently featured along with Yoko Ono, Frank Zappa, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Sun Ra and James Brown in “Adventures in Avant Pop” by Bob Mielke (Naciketas Press). This 512 page in-depth study examines “seven great pop musicians who expanded the boundaries of musical creativity in their own different ways during the peaks of their careers in the second half of the 20th Century.” Ono? Zappa? Young? Mitchell? Ra? Brown? Not a bad bunch to be included with.
While no two Snopek shows ever prove to be the same, they always prove to provide an evening of unique musical delights. Pre-show reception starts at 6:30 in the motel lobby, show time 7pm. Tickets are $10 each and can be reserved by calling 920-743-5571 or stopping by the motel between 7am and 9pm.
