---- — The Centerville Concert Association has provided world-class entertainment for the Southern Iowa and Northern Missouri area for the past 47 years. The Association is announcing the series for the 2013-2014 season and is inviting the public to join the 300+ members who enjoyed last season to become part of the current August/September membership drive.

Season tickets this year are available for five local performances plus 15 additional and different concerts in Ottumwa, Washington and Fairfield. The $35 adult, $10 student, $75 family season ticket prices have not changed and make the concert series one of the best entertainment values around.

The Association is known to provide a variety of entertaining concerts for the music patrons of this area and is evident with the lineup chosen for the coming season. Shows selected are: The Unexpected Surfer Boys; Sons Of The Pioneers; New Century Saxophone Quartet; Albia Community Choir and Mack Bailey, Singer/Songwriter.

Letters have been sent to members and new individuals and businesses to become part of the Centerville Concert Association by mailing checks to become members in advance of the drive which will begin on Aug. 29. Volunteers will then be making contacts and while a good percentage of the community will be contacted, interested individuals are also encouraged to purchase memberships at Owl Pharmacy or J&K Market on the Centerville square.

The Centerville Concert Association is a non-profit organization and all revenues go towards artist fees, administrative and technical concert costs. The Association appreciates all the support the area has shown over the years as they continue their goal of providing entertainment and education for everyone regardless of age. The concert series benefits not only individuals attending but the community’s image as a whole.
