DIXON (WIFR) -- Gather your family and friends for a delightful Christmas musical performance at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 5 at the Historic Dixon Theatre in downtown Dixon. The holiday show titled "A Family Christmas" features professional musicians, Mark and Gretch Hladish with Jo Hodges from their resident cabaret theater at Millie's Restaurant and Shopping Villages, in Delavan, WI.
"We are delighted to have this concert be a part of our Christmas Walk weekend in downtown Dixon," Dixon Main Street executive director Josh Albrecht said. "It should be a very magical evening having Mark and Gretch perform."
This unique concert experience is crafted with seasonal anecdotes, humorous and heartwarming, flowing from one song to the next. The music is spirited and contemporary, creatively preserving the beauty and warmth of many well loved, classic Christmas carols, hymns and holiday songs. "A Family Christmas" was inspired by Bing Crosby's classic film, "White Christmas", to fashion a festive celebration of familiar holiday music.
Michelle Knight, of The First National Bank in Amboy, brought the idea to Dixon Main Street after the bank's travel group saw Mark and Gretch perform during a trip to Delavan, Wis., earlier this year.
"We wanted to provide a memorable Christmas experience for all ages," Knight said. First National Bank in Amboy is presenting sponsor and proceeds benefit Dixon Main Street and the Historic Dixon Theatre.
