Another nationally-known musician recently called Sturgeon Bay home over the last week while recording a new album. Oregon native Johanna Beekman has been living on the road for months performing her unique style of music, which includes the Indian-style chantings of Kirtan and her most recent foray into lullaby yoga. Beekman, in town to collaborate again with Hans Christian at his Studio 330 studios, says Sturgeon Bay has provided a beautiful space to work.

Christian says it is great to see artists like Beekman travel to Sturgeon Bay to record and to perform instead of traditional hubs for music.

Beekman left town on Tuesday to continue her performance schedule in Illinois, but hopes her Sturgeon Bay-recorded album, Lullaby Yoga: Soothing the Soul, will come out next year.

Luxemburg-Casco High School is committed to its student's artwork being displayed beyond the classroom.  Searching for a way to liven up the walls of the school, District Administrator Glenn Schlender had an idea.  Many schools feature student artwork in the hallway, but Schlender's idea went one step further.



Despite the cultural shift away from arts and towards more core classes, studies have shown that there is a correlation between involvement in the arts and academic achievement.

Two timely Northern Sky Theater standards are slated to end their runs in Fish Creek this weekend. The deer hunting musical "Guys and Does" returned to the Door Community Auditorium Labor Day weekend after a six-year absence from the fall season. The political comedy "And If Elected" continued its Presidential election year tradition with updated content late last month at the Old Gibraltar Town Hall. Artistic Director Jeffrey Herbst says the two productions also brought back some familiar faces to the Northern Sky stages.

"Guys and Does" closes October 15 at the DCA, while "And If Elected" concludes at the Old Gibraltar Town Hall on October 16. You can read more about the shows and learn how to buy tickets online here.
