It’s been 67 years since ski-film pioneer Warren Miller picked up a camera to capture the wonder, the adventure, the humor and the beauty that is skiing. Since that time, Warren Miller film crews have traveled the globe—from storied slopes to hidden, snow-covered corners—to celebrate all things snowsports. Their quest has taken powder-hungry filmgoers, well, Here, There & Everywhere—and this year continues that legacy.
It starts with Here. Because that’s what every snow adventure is ultimately about: being really here—in the moment. In this 67th annual Warren Miller film, here is a freeski adventure with Ingrid Backstrom and Wendy Fisher in Crested Butte. It’s a powder day with the ski patrol for Kaylin Richardson, Matt Elliott and Marcus Caston at Kicking Horse, B.C. And it’s every other stunning locale the film takes you, from the steeps of Squaw Valley to the big air at Fenway Park (yes, that Fenway Park).
The film also journeys There, that place we dream about whenever we’re not in the mountains. It sweeps across the expanses of Alaska, between the backcountry yurts of Western Montana’s Glacier Country, and down the slopes of Deer Valley as we pay homage to the great Stein Eriksen. It spurs us toward adventure, toward the undeniable turns we’ll take this year, as soon as the snow begins to fall.
And before we know it, we’ve been Everywhere—crossing Greenland by dog sled with Rob Kingwill and Seth Wescott, and following Jess McMillan and Grete Eliassen on a Swiss holiday aboard the Glacier Express. All along the way, Warren Miller himself spins tales as only Warren can do, reminding us that through the years, Warren Miller films have truly taken audiences Here, There & Everywhere.

The Elkhart Municipal Band, sponsored by Mayor Tim Neese and the Elkhart City Council, present their annual Christmas gift of holiday music.
Handbell pre-concert 'Sounds of the Season' will be performed at 1:45 pm by The Jubilee Ringers of Elkhart County; Elkhart's Handbell performing group, now in their 29th community season. The crowd-pleasing annual "Tuba Christmas" is featured within the concert. Christmas favorites are played by a stage-filled group of tubists including tuba, baritone & euphonium instruments. Players come from the surrounding Michiana area.
The concert opener is a collection of holiday favorites with a joyful & buoyant show-biz style that makes spirits bright! An unusual surprise is the band's rendition of "a rather different treatment of several Christmas songs," according to conductor Dave Swihart. This new arrangement to the band is titled: "Minor Alterations- Christmas Through The Looking Glass." It’s destined to become an audience favorite. Other audience holiday favorites being performed include Carol of the Drum, Merry Christmas Darling, and Feliz Navidad.
The holiday concert concludes with an exciting collection of standards in "A Most Wonderful Christmas," that features several band members and gets the audience feet tapping and voices singing!
All this is packaged together with a holiday wish of peace, joy & goodwill to all, from the band personnel & the City of Elkhart.

They are people who come from many generations and all walks of life and back grounds for the purpose of serving God through music and community outreach. In addition to being involved in our weekly services, they also perform seasonal Cantatas and musicals.Their repertoire covers a wide variety of styles from Handel to Vince Guaraldi! In December 2014 and 2015 they participated in the Festival Choir with the South Bend Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Maestro Tsung Yeh.

She received her Music Education degree from Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Illinois and has studied voice and Education at Indiana University at South Bend, Indiana. She is a 25 year veteran of the teaching and choral directing profession. Since 2007, she has been the Worship Arts Director at Brenneman Missionary Church in Goshen, Indiana.
