Jason Palmer will conduct his first, holiday concert next Thursday as the new director of the Peninsula Symphonic band. Paula Eggert stepped down as the director in June after 14 years and Palmer took over the reins for the Fourth of July concert performance. He shares his recent background in music.
Palmer and his wife Jamie are retired and returned to Door County in June after living in Illinois for five years. He is also an organist at Bayview Lutheran Church in Sturgeon Bay. Thursday’s Peninsula Symphonic Band’s holiday concert is free to the public and will begin at 7 pm at Prince of Peace Church in Sturgeon Bay.
