6/4/2019 7:30:00 AM Local musicians The Treble Makers to
take the stage at Nicolet College June 13
An ensemble of local musicians will combine their considerable musical talents to present an inspiring evening of music at the Nicolet College Theatre when The Treble Makers perform Thursday June 13 at 7:30 p.m., college officials announced in a press release.
Carmen Kreitlow, Holly Spiegelhoff, Laurie Craig, and Cindy Nelson will return to the Nicolet stage and be joined by Scott Kirby in an eclectic mix of musical styles.
"Their 2014 Christmas concert was so well-received that they are back by popular demand to conclude the 2018-2019 Nicolet Live! Performing Arts Series," Nicolet College Theatre director Jim Nuttall said.
The upcoming show is a musical reunion of sorts.
"We've continued to work together as duos and trios at various venues but all of us have not performed together for five years, and we are very excited to be together again," Spiegelhoff said.
All of the musicians have a long history and deep-seated love for music, unifying for the upcoming performance they've deemed "Our Musical Roots."
"We all came from diverse backgrounds," Spiegelhoff said. "We searched our past, what formed our love of music, and narrowed a bunch of songs and styles down to seven or eight songs that spoke to our youth and the genres we loved."
The second half of the program will focus on how they've evolved in their musical journeys.
"We're all children of the '70s, so we tend to gravitate toward '70s folks. But we love many genres. And Scott Kirby, being our younger counterpart, will keep things fresh," Spiegelhoff added.
The group is eclectic in many ways. Spiegelhoff is a full-time music director and teacher at Nativity of Our Lord in Rhinelander. She provides vocals, harmonies, and plays keyboard.
Carmen Kreitlow is a registered nurse and private music teacher, known for bringing gorgeous improvisation and classical piano sound to contemporary music as well as vocals.
Cindy Nelson, who works at an assisted living facility and as a substitute teacher, is a skillful violinist with an incredible vocal range.
Laurie Craig, a Nicolet Players theater troupe veteran, is a house painter and vocalist with beautiful vocal tone and instinctive harmonies and creativity.
Recording artist Scott Kirby is a talented guitarist with bluesy rock grit vocals.
Drummer Jaime Knott will sit in on percussion for the evening.
"When it's over, I want the audience to remember that even though we're all very different, music speaks the same language, touches all souls, and brings us together," Craig said.
