An Old-Fashioned Family Christmas


December 12, 2019

Join your family and friends to usher in the magic of the holiday season with Agate Encores “An Old-Fashioned Family Christmas” on Sunday, December 15, at 2 p.m. in the Moose Lake High School Auditorium. Vicki Fingalson, soprano, and Jeff Madison, baritone, accompanied by Jeanne Doty on piano will perform old Christmas favorites and introduce soon-to-be favorites as we “gather around the piano” with them!

Vicki Fingalson is an active performer with over 75 productions to her credit with companies and symphonies across the U.S. including the Minnesota Orchestra, The Minnesota Opera, the Colorado Symphony, the Jacksonville Symphony, and numerous broadcasts on Minnesota Public Radio. Vicki is currently Professor of Voice and Director of Opera Workshop at UW-Superior.

Hailed for his dramatic diversity, baritone and stage director, Jeffrey Madison, has performed and directed a varied repertoire from grand opera and operetta to musical comedy. He has performed leading roles with companies that include The Minnesota Opera, the Colorado Symphony, the Jacksonville Symphony, and an appearance at Carnegie Hall with the Minnesota Orchestra. Jeff currently teaches in the music department of UW-Superior, the College of St. Scholastica, and Lake Superior Community College.

This dynamic duo will perform a mixture of secular and sacred music accompanied on piano by Jeanne Doty, who is retired from the University of Minnesota Duluth. As a respected collaborative pianist, she has performed in Italy, Costa Rica, and Norway.

Autumn Voices, our own Moose Lake community choir directed by Nancy Bennett, will also perform to round out a stellar show featuring such favorites as White Christmas, Winter Wonderland, Sleigh Ride, O Holy Night, Silent Night, and so many more. Tickets, available until sold out, can be purchased at the door or in advance at
