Despite losing its choir director earlier this school year, the Kewaunee music programs have not missed a beat. Choir director Erin LaFond had only served the district a year before her sudden departure left a hole in the Fine Arts Department. Kewaunee band director Kelton Jennings and private tutors, some coming from as far as UW-Stevens Point, have helped fill the void as it prepared for its fall musical earlier this month and winter concert in December. The experience has left Kewaunee principal Michael Bennett impressed with the type of teamwork that exists on his staff.
Bennett says it will have a new choir director in place at the beginning of 2020. The Kewaunee Music Department's winter concert is scheduled for December 15th and will be replayed on 102.1 MORE FM on December 20th during its "Music to Wrap Presents By" celebration featuring other high school groups.
