Unprecedented 8 concert season

 

The Kearney Concert Association (KCA) has modified its upcoming 2020-2021 concert season with an unprecedented 8 concerts. KCA President, Rick Mitchell said, “Due to Covid-19 issues, all of the concerts scheduled for the fall of 2020 are being postponed until approximately the same dates in 2021.” Mitchell added “The concerts scheduled for February through May of 2021 will run as scheduled. “

The normal KCA season has five concerts, however, the 2020-21 season was scheduled to include a bonus sixth concert and with the two 2019 replacement concerts, it will be an eight-concert season. All members will still only pay the regular adult season membership of $50. Students can get a season membership for $25 and family memberships are $110.

Two concerts of the 2019-20 Season had to be canceled in March and April of 2020. To make up for that, KCA will be adding two concerts to what will become the 2021 Season on a calendar year rather than fiscal year basis.

Replacing the 8-member Young Irelanders March 13, 2020 concert will be the Masters of Soul, a 10-member dynamic tribute to the best music of Motown, featuring 3 female and 3 male singers backed with an instrumental quartet. Their concert will be in November 2021. The Frank Vignola Hot Jazz Guitar Trio that was scheduled for April 24, 2020, will now be seen on Monday, April 12, 2021.

All KCA 2019-20 members will be able to attend these two make up performances in 2021 without charge. As always, especially in a time of pandemic, everything is subject to change.
