As most all know, the creative sector has been particularly hard-hit due to the pandemic and cancellations of almost all live events in the state. The Kids From Wisconsin are eager to get back to Manitowoc on July 22 to present their Live! In Living Color production as well as be involved in a community arts collaborative. Kids From Wisconsin has performed in Manitowoc every year for many of their 53 year existence except for 2020.
Corey Van Sickle of the Manitowoc Marine Band took on the challenge of hosting this years show as a FREE event for the Manitowoc community. Corey is a proud alum of the Kids From Wisconsin band from 2005,” stated Tina Weiss, Managing Director.
Corey Van Sickle of the Marine Band enthusiastically stated -“The Manitowoc Marine Band along with the City of Manitowoc Parks and Recreation Department, and the West Foundation are happy to bring the Kids from Wisconsin to Manitowoc this year. Live music is such an important part of our culture both for the audience and the performers. As a former “Kid” I remember how life changing it was to spread music and joy to communities all around Wisconsin; there is so much we can learn through music!”
