Performing arts season to open with folk singer from Nebraska


The Performing Arts Association of Linthicum has announced the schedule for its new season. Five concerts are scheduled for the bargain price of only $20, with an additional free concert open to all. A great buy in anyone's book.

Unfortunately, the free concert by the Naval Academy Wind Ensemble will not open the season Sept. 30, but has been rescheduled for March 16. The season will start with a concert Nov. 18, by Ann Zimmerman, a folk singer from Nebraska who will sing with piano and guitar accompaniment.

The duo piano and piano four- hand artistry of Goldina and Loumbrozo will entertain Jan. 20. The Allnations Dance Company will take the stage Feb. 24 to present "Joy in Every Land." On March 9, performing arts subscribers will hear Performers 3, a soprano, baritone and pianist.

The final concert April 27 features a return of The Sounds of New Orleans, the Crescent City's premier jazz band.

All concerts are at 8 p.m. at the new North County High School.

There still is time to subscribe to the latest performing arts season. Parking at the concerts is free and well-lighted, and the building is accessible to the disabled.

For more information, please contact Roy Pippen at 859-8063 or Jerry Van Airsdale at 636- 2579.
