Doug LaBrecque, BC Brass Band highlights the holiday entertainment program

Doug LaBrecque of Battle Creek will perform with the Brass Band of Battle Creek for the annual Holiday Concert.

Nothing gets many of us into the holiday spirit more than a little music and entertainment.

The Battle Creek area has plenty of this next month, whether to get you in the holiday spirit or as a gift idea in the form of tickets to an upcoming show.

For many, the Brass Band of Battle Creek’s holiday concert is the unofficial kickoff to the holiday season, and it will take center stage Saturday at the WK Kellogg Auditorium.

“For many families and longtime patrons, this is the thing that kicks off their holiday season. It’s their way of getting into the Christmas spirit,” said Shannon Aikins, executive director of the Brass Band of Battle Creek.

One of Battle Creek’s members, Broadway star Doug LaBrecque, will join the Brass Band this year. The Lakeview High School graduate has delighted New York audiences for nearly two decades with starring roles in “Phantom of the Opera,” as well as “Showboat” and a national tour of “Les Misérables.”
