The Maxinkuckee Singers are already nearly finished with their performances of this year’s Christmas concert, but there are still two shows available. Greg Underwood and Brian Lichte with the Singers visited WKVI’s Tom Berg and gave him some insight into just what the show is all about.
Underwood has been a Maxinkuckee Singer for 10 seasons, and Lichte said he’s been around for a few years longer than that. The group itself was established 32 years ago.
Six performances of the Christmas concert are already behind them, and with only two left to go, Underwood urges everyone who needs some help getting into the holiday spirit to attend.
“If you’ve never seen this group before, especially around the holidays, it’s just what the doctor ordered. The holidays are coming and if you’re looking for that holiday show to really get you in the spirit. If you’re having a little trouble into the full mode, come out and see one of these shows. They are free, but we accept a free will offering,” said Underwood.
The Maxinkuckee Singers, Underwood explained, are a not-for-profit organization but they do collect funds in order to help cover the expense of running the group, which includes 20 vocalists this year.
Lichte said the show is really for everyone.
“It’s a general show. It’s good for old folks; it’s good for young folks. It’s Christmas music; it’s a Christmas show. It’s group singing. There’s a quartet. There’s a couple duets. There’s a trio. There’s a couple solos,” Lichte said.
The remaining performances are scheduled for Monday, Dec. 16 at Knox United Methodist Church in Knox, and on Tuesday, Dec. 17 at Argos United Methodist Church. The shows begin at 6:30 p.m. CT. For more information, call (574) 276-2287.
