A true Wisconsin Christmas tradition, the John Altenburgh Christmas Extravaganza has long been the hottest ticket in town at the Grand Theatre in Wausau. The pandemic canceled what would have been the ensemble’s 26th annual performance, but Shereen Siewert welcomes Altenburgh and with fellow band member Mitch Viegut to share highlights from previous programs.

Along with sharing their favorite past performances, these two musicians will talk about the history of the show, the bonds of friendship that keep them together, and how they work to keep the show fresh for audiences year after year.
