Local groups keep the holidays jolly through music

From high school musicians to Broadway singers, groups in Door and Kewaunee counties are carrying a tune along with the holiday spirit. Local high schools are starting to wrap up their winter band and choir concerts before they have their Christmas break. Kewaunee High School band teacher Kelton Jennings says it helps students to play familiar songs, but it does not hurt to challenge them either with certain arrangements.



Northern Sky Theater has been holding its “Home for the Holidays” show for over a decade. This year the show features music director Ryan Cappleman, Northern Sky Theater artistic director Jeff Herbst, and Broadway performer Tom Donoghue. Unlike any other time of the year, Herbst says music plays an important role at Christmas.


Kewaunee, Luxemburg-Casco, Southern Door, and Gibraltar high schools will host some of their winter concerts Sunday and Monday, while Northern Sky Theater’s Home for the Holidays runs December 28th through 31st. You can listen to last weekend’s Ask the Expert with Northern Sky Theater and see our schedule of winter concert broadcasts of seven Door and Kewaunee county schools online with this story.
