Featuring Elliott Funmaker and the Wisconsin Dells Singers

Our August 11th concert is a partnership with the Ho-Chunk Nation. A local performer of the Ho-Chunk Nation, Elliott Funmaker and the Wisconsin Dells Singers and Dancers, perform around the state. Funmaker will be performing four songs of his Native American culture.

They are the Ho-Chunk Flag Song, the Ho-Chunk Marine Corp Song, the Soldier Chief Song, and the Dejope Song. Dejope is the Native American Ho-Chunk word for Madison. That’s an arrangement the orchestra will be performing with Elliott. There will also be a grand entry of Ho-Chunk dancers at the beginning of the concert.

We are pairing this against four movements from The Planets by Gustav Holst: Mars the Bringer of War, Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity, Mercury, the Winged Messenger, and Venus, the Bringer of Peace.
