A Community Christmas Celebration was held December 7th, 2003, at 2pm.  We enjoyed wonderful music of the season from Carolyn Carver and her violin students, and Helmi Harrington and her accordion students.  We also had the opportunity to participate in Toys for Tots through the Bong Heritage Center.

Dee Langley and Greg Dagoumas played their accordions with great skill and sparkling enthusiasm  on Nov 2nd, 2003. Their repertoire included everything from waltzes, schottisches and polkas to classical music such as Mozart and Bach, with a splash of Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen in between!

The Original Nauheimer Dorfmusikanten played German Octoberfest here in Superior on Wednesday, September 24th, 2003!  The genuine German 12 piece band on its first American tour delighted us with their music, vocals, authentic costumes, and authentic German repertory and singing!

Stas Venglevski returned to our stage with his friend John Simkus in a dazzling “explosion” of virtuoso duets Sunday, May 4th at 2:00 PM.  Stas is a former student of Friedrich Lips (Moscow).  He performed here in 2002 with Lips and is one of the USA's foremost concert artists.  John Simkus is a Chicago native who specializes in jazz and contemporary improvisatory music. Stas and John concluded a national tour that brought rave reviews.
