Holton-Elkhorn Band – Christmas Concert 2020

We hope November finds everyone doing well and in good health. We have been in contact with the school district and our upcoming Christmas concert was discussed. It was said the audience would have to be very limited or we might have to play a virtual concert streamed on YouTube for the audience. We wondered if we’d have even a modest sized band with the state Corona issues blowing up as of late, especially with us all sharing a stage and blowing air through our instruments at each other. After some discussion it was decided we would cancel the Christmas concert this year. As much as we don’t want to do that it’s probably better for all concerned. Surely things will look better in spring and we might possibly be able to have a normal summer concert series. We hope that will take place and we look forward to seeing all of you there for some nice warm and balmy summer concerts! Until then . . . stay safe and have a healthy holiday season. We sure have missed seeing you and making music for you.

Sincerely, The Holton-Elkhorn Band

Holton-Elkhorn Band – Summer 2020

It is with heavy heart that this blog is being written to the fans of the Holton-Elkhorn Band this day.  After much thought, listening to the news and the state of our country’s health, as well as thoughts from our current band members, the Holton-Elkhorn band has decided to cancel the summer 2020 band concerts in the park.

Most bands in Wisconsin that perform summer concerts have canceled for the summer. This writer, and for that fact, no one in the band, would ever get over it if someone that attended one of the concerts got seriously ill and/or died.  This writer thinks that it is far better to err on the side of caution than to perform and possibly hurt someone.

Let us all look forward to getting together in December for a Great Christmas concert. Let’s also believe for all the health issues our country is facing to be past by that time.

Stay safe and stay healthy!

2019 Holton-Elkhorn Band Christmas Concert – Dec. 14, 2019

Rehearsals start tonight for this year’s Holton Band Christmas concert. The band is ready and eager to make wonderful sounds and tunes for this holiday season.

There’ll be a song about travelling kings, a tune done in Celtic style, a wonderful medley of Irving Berlin Christmas tunes, oh, and it’s been rumored that a green creature that abhors friendship and fun might come lurking when the band plays a certain TV Holiday Special song.

It’s an evening of wonderful music that you won’t want to miss. Saturday Dec. 14th at 7:30 pm in the Elkhorn high school auditorium. It is a free concert and tickets can be picked up at the Elkhorn Chamber of Commerce.
