The Phillips County Arts Council is excited to announce performances for the2012-13 concert series.

This year offers a variety of entertainment that will engage and entertain audiences of all ages and interests.

PCAC is kicking off its membership drive and will be contacting members of the community during the next month. The annual concert series is a tremendous asset to the community and the surrounding area. The series offers residents the opportunity to view high-quality entertainment in Phillips County at a very reasonable cost.

The season begins on Monday, Oct. 15 with New Odyssey. This group of three guys has been entertaining audiences across venues and generations for over 20 years.

This act is versatile, funny, polished, family-oriented and awesome in presentation. Outstanding arrangements of almost every style are performed on 30 different musical instruments. With a unique combination of great music, audience participation and sheer zaniness, mayhem can ensue at any moment.

While using the latest technology and equipment, this group is constantly updating their material and creating timeless musical compositions that surprise and delight audience members of all ages.

The Church Basement Ladies, A Second Helping brings musical theater to Phillips County Wednesday, Jan. 30. Due to the original long-running musical’s phenomenal success, the sequel picks up the story of the original characters as they continue to deal with life, death and new adventures in the world and in their lives.

Inspired by the books of Janet Letnes Martin and Suzann Nelson, including the best seller Growing Up Lutheran, this hilarious performance is sure to delight. PCAC is very fortunate to offer this dramatic presentation in the area.

The third offering of the season, Abbey Road Band, arrives on Monday, April 29. Abbey Road Band is a phenomenal Beatles tribute group. Young and old alike will take a trip back to the ‘60s with these polished professional performers. They are highly entertaining and gifted musicians, and audiences embrace them wholeheartedly.

They are personable, funny and genuinely nice guys whose enthusiasm for their craft really shows. Beatles fans and others as well will enjoy this performance.

A fourth program to be announced at a later date will round out this year’s performance schedule.

Individual and group memberships can be purchased at incredibly reasonable prices. Students accompanied by an adult are always admitted free. In addition to the Holyoke performances, members will be entitled to attend performances of 10 other groups utilizing the reciprocity agreement with the communities of Fort Morgan, McCook, Neb., North Platte, Neb. and Burlington.

With the support of the community and surrounding areas, PCAC is able to offer this outstanding entertainment in Phillips County. For further information and to purchase memberships, contact Teresa Mailander at 970-580-1939 or Joe Hall at 970-854-3444.
