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!

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.

Holton-Elkhorn Band – Star Spangled Spectacular 2019

Wow, what a Star Spangled Spectacular celebration it was! The weather was great, the food and other vendors were great and the music was great. To share the stage with the 132nd Army Band was simply wonderful! They sounded great, looked great and were very professional. They put on a great performance before the Holton-Elkhorn Band took the stage. All the evening’s activities were perfect . . . including a great Fireworks display. Elkhorn, you have some great people working together to make a more than fine city with neat activities. Congrats to the 132nd Army Band and the Holton-Elkhorn Band on their Wonderful concert performances. Oh, and did you catch Stars and Stripes Forever for the Finale, where the two bands performed together. The Army band marched out and played from memory in front of the bandshell. I hope you didn’t miss this great event!

So sorry to say that we’re cancelling the concert tonight. Consulting three weather and radar sites it looks as though rain is at 60% from 7pm until 9pm.

We love our audience and we know many would come with raingear, but we look forward to seeing you all next week.
