Helpin' out another WELS High School

I just got an email from a friend of mine, Mike Goede, who directs the choirs at Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School in Jackson, WI. They've got a great choral program (they are also going to sing for the Wisconsin Choral Directors Association State Convention!) and have entered a Christmas Choir Contest on WMYX. Voting is Friday, Nov. 30 only. Go vote for them! His email explains it all:
On a whim, KML's Concert Choir entered a recording in a local radio station's Christmas Choir Contest. There were 36 entries, and they paired this down to 12. We were fortunate to be one of the finalists. They now make a bracket of three schools, and the choir receiving the most votes that day moves onto the next round.

Our bracket competes tomorrow against two of the best programs in the state. We're asking for any and all people who can to log on and vote for KML. The winning choir receives $1000 for the school and performs live on the radio.

Go to and find the Jane and Kidd Tab Christmas Choir Contest.

We will have a clipped played on the radio tomorrow morning around 7 and voting lasts all day. You can only vote once so forward this to as many people as you can. Help the "little Lutheran school" prevail.

Remember: vote tomorrow (FRIDAY) from 7am-11:59pm and spread the word. Let's see if we can pull this off.

Thanks for all of your help.

  1. The Kettle Choir advanced to the next is the latest email from Mike...


    After a come-from-behind victory, the Concert Choir advanced to the
    semi-finals of the WMXY Christmas Choir Competition. We face off with
    Cedarburg High School tomorrow (Wednesday). Vote online at
    from 7:00am to 11:59pm. Click on the "Jane and Kidd" link and follow the
    directions to the voting page. We knocked off one larger school because of
    our ability to spread the word and appeal to our loyal supporters. We're one
    step closer to $1000 for KML. Let's spread the word.

    Thank you in advance to all of you who voted last week, forwarded the message to friends, ran around your offices.

    We appreciate this so very much.

    Fingers crossed!
