Saturday marked the first annual holiday concert series at the Birch Creek Music Performance Center. The Hand Bell Choir of Moravian Church in Sister Bay, the Birch Creek Symphony Session Brass, and world-renowned Percussionist and the Director of Percussion at the University of Iowa Dan Moore headlined the event. Executive Director Moana Christensen explained her reasoning behind putting on this event.
Several musicians had to travel many miles to perform on Saturday. Some from Northern Iowa and others from Northern Illinois. Christensen said that she wanted to have this concert early in the holiday season because so many of the performers are music teachers and would have to conduct holiday concerts of their own in the coming weeks.
