Education creates empowerment. Part of RISE TOGETHER's mission is to educate people on substance abuse issues. Education and awareness can break some of the stigma that surrounds addiction. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), an estimated 20 million Americans aged 12 or older used an illegal drug in the past 30 days. Additionally, the non-medical use or abuse of prescription drugs including painkillers, sedatives, and stimulants is growing, with an estimated 48 million people ages 12 and older using prescription drugs for non-medical reasons. This represents approximately 20 percent of the U.S. population. It is our mission to reduce these numbers. We believe that through education and awareness we can help prevent our youth from going down the same path we did and empower those who are struggling to reach out and ask for the help they need. For more information please visit weallrisetogether.org or upcoming events at threelakessd.k12.wi.us or call Mrs. Margitan at 715-546-3323.

FIRST OF THE CAMPANILE SPRING CONCERTS, SUNDAY, APRIL 26 The Lakeland Community Concert Band will present its annual Spring Concert on Sunday, April 26. For this concert, the band will transport you back to the early 20th century, to a time when community bands were the main source of entertainment in many towns. In addition to the local bands, there were also bands that traveled around the country, and the king of them all was Sousa’s Band, led by the “March King” John Philip Sousa. Sousa’s Band featured the best musicians in the country, and his concerts were fast-paced and fun, and included a varied program of overtures, instrumental and vocal solos, descriptive pieces, novelty numbers and of course his famous marches. Concert selections include “Light Cavalry Overture,” “The Whistler and His Dog,” “On Wisconsin," “Annie Lawrie,” “La Paloma,” as well as Sousa compositions “Tally Ho Overture,” “I’ve Made My Plans for the Summer,” and many of his popular marches. Join us at the Campanile Center at 1:00 as the Lakeland Community Concert Band recreates a 1920’s-style concert when John Philip Sousa and his famous band came to town. The Campanile Center for the Arts is located in downtown Minocqua at the corner of Milwaukee and Flambeau Sts. Admission is free, with a suggested minimum of $5. For further information you may visit our website: campanilecenter.org,or call 715-356-9700. Auditorium doors will open at 12:30 PM.

The Campanile Center for the Arts will host The Hot Club of Cowtown on Wednesday, April 29 at 7:00 p.m.

Since its beginnings in the late 1990s, Hot Club of Cowtown’s star has continued to rise as its reputation for jaw-dropping virtuosity and unforgettable live shows has become the band’s global brand. Lauded for its “down-home melodies and exuberant improvisation” (The Times, London), the Hot Club has always woven a combination of seemingly disparate styles together to its own magical effect, setting up camp “at that crossroads where country meets jazz and chases the blues away” (The Independent), and “conscious always that above all else, the music is for dancing and an old-fashioned good time” (New York Times). The band’s musical alchemy has been described as “another breathless journey in the Texas tardis” (The Times, London), while American Songwriter observed that “The excellent three players of this band could be doing anything but have chosen to honor the greats of jazz and swing with their sound.” The Belfast Telegraph calls them “a pretty much perfect country trio at the very top of their game,” while the New York Times, reviewing a live performance in New York City in 2011, describes the trio as armed with “an arsenal full of technique and joy.”

Along with the Hot Club’s dedicated cult following worldwide — they have toured for the U.S. State Department as musical ambassadors to Azerbaijan, Armenia, the Republic of Georgia and the Sultanate of Oman — certain titans of the industry have also taken notice. Bob Dylan, with whom the band toured and with whom James has toured and recorded, is a continuing inspiration. The Hot Club has opened several shows for Willie Nelson, toured with Nelson and Dylan during a summer-long stadium tour, and opened seven nights of Roxy Music’s sold-out “For Your Pleasure” U.K. stadium tour in early 2011. In the U.K. the Hot Club of Cowtown continues to tour extensively and has been featured at the Glastonbury Festival and has also been a returning guest on Later With Jools Holland, the Cambridge Folk Festival, and BBC Radio 2’s Radcliffe and Maconie and Bob Harris Country shows.

This year's winner of Best Western Swing Group at the 2015 Ameripolitan Music Awards - be sure to catch them here.

The Campanile Center for the Arts is located in downtown Minocqua at the corner of Milwaukee and Flambeau Sts. Tickets are Adults $20, and Students $10 and may be purchased by visiting our website: campanilecenter.org, by calling 715-356-9700, or at the door. Auditorium doors will open at 6:30 PM.

Drum and Bugle Corps Show Returning to North Central Wisconsin on July 7

For the first time in almost 15 years, residents of north central Wisconsin will have the opportunity to experience up close and personal the excitement of a Drum Corps International (DCI) competition.  

 

River City Rhapsody-Wausau will bring 6 DCI competitive drum and bugle corps to Stiehm Stadium at DC Everest Jr High School on Tuesday, July 7. The event is being produced by The Blue Stars Drum & Bugle Corps, DC Everest Music Program and Wausau East Band Boosters.

 

Corps scheduled to compete in River City Rhapsody are Blue Saints, Sudbury, ON, Canada; Blue Stars, La Crosse, WI; Legends, Kalamazoo MI; Madison Scouts, Madison WI; Music City, Nashville TN and Pioneer, Milwaukee WI. 

River City Rhapsody will begin at 7 p.m.; with the gates opening at 5 p.m. Tickets for the performance can be purchased in advance at rivercityrhapsody.com/wausau.php, or by calling 507.269.8280. 

"The return of a regional drum corps show to the Wausau area is something people have been asking for and the Blue Stars are pleased to be partnering with local music programs to make it a reality,” said Gary Tollers, event coordinator. “Drum corps is the kind of entertainment that everyone in the family will enjoy. It is inspiring and exciting what these young people do on a football field." 

Each corps consists of a hornline, drumline, front ensemble and colorguard.  The 150 young men and women in each of the corps are 14 to 21 years old. The corps travel over 12,000 miles each summer, going daily from city to city competing in over 35 events in two months. 

While in north Central Wisconsin, each corps will be housed at an area school and spend rehearsal time perfecting their summer programs which conclude in mid-August at the DCI World Championships in Indianapolis.

"These talented performers come from all over the United States and various other countries with many furthering their musical careers as music educators, dance directors and professional performers,” said Tollers.

North Central Wisconsin was once home to several Drum and Bugle Corps including Wausau Story, Wausau; Bells of St. Mary, Rhinelander; Zephyrs, Wisconsin Rapids and Maria, Stevens Point. 

Various sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are available for River City Rhapsody. Anyone interested should contact Tollers at 507.250.2776. 

Support for this project is provided through the Community Arts Grant Program of the Community Foundation of North Central Wisconsin, with funds provided by the Wisconsin Arts Board, a state agency, the Community Foundation, and the B.A. & Esther Greenheck Foundation.
