One Kewaunee County high school band program is bringing the community together in a big way. The Algoma High School band program is a driving force behind the love of music in the city of Algoma. Under the direction of band director Jennifer Massey, the band program has forged invaluable partnerships with the Algoma Community Band to aid in the growth of music city-wide. Massey says just the ability to be able to get out and engage the community is one monumental asset for the program.
With over 100 students participating in the band program at the high school level this year Massey says she owes all the success from the past 14 years to the community.
The next chance to catch the Algoma band in action will take place later this year for the school’s annual winter concert series at the Algoma Performing Arts Center in mid-December.
