And the baton goes to ...

Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt will do the honors of conducting the Civic Symphony of Green Bay during its concert at 3 p.m. April 14 at the Meyer Theatre.

The mayor beat out three other local celebrities for the Battle of the Baton fundraiser, in which $1 votes by the public determined who would get to conduct a work with the symphony. Brian Niznansky, meteorologist at WGBA-TV, Channel 26; Tina Quigley, executive director of Mosaic Arts; and Lisa Malak, media/public relations coordinator for Prevea Health, were also in the running.

Schmitt will rehearse with the orchestra this week before he steps on stage next Sunday to conduct the John Phillip Sousa march "Stars and Stripes Forever.''
