  • Area sales of subscriptions to the 2013-2014 Pratt Community Concert Association are now underway. This is the 75th year PCCA has offered live entertainment to the Pratt vicinity. Volunteer workers began canvassing Pratt and surrounding areas following a campaign kick-off session last week.
    "Wow! What a season is planned," say PCCA board members after listening to samples of each event.
    Renewals give supporters five concerts for this coming year.
    Any new subscriber also is invited to the last concert for the current season as a bonus. This bonus will be the fabulous Abbey Road Band. If the Beatles could still perform live, they would sound like these great musicians who really do sound like the Beatles. This group appears at 7 p.m. April 26 at the Pratt Community College Carpenter Auditorium.
    The five 2013-2014 concerts booked begin next Oct. 24th with Trio Voronez.. This instrumental combo features a variety of classical, folk, and contemporary arrangements.
    On Nov. 15th, world-class jazz singer, guitarist and songwriter Allan Harris will show PCCA subscribers why he packs houses in the United States, Europe, Russia, and the Far East.
    Gifted singer and incendiary pianist Michael Kaeshammer demonstrates his showmanship on Feb. 28, 2014.
    On March 16th, Mack Bailey will charm the audience with his folk music renditions.
    Finally, John Davidson, with many years of television and Broadway performances, described as a national treasure, entertains with great and beloved songs and banjo virtuosity on May 22.
    South Central Kansas music lovers who enjoy live performances will not want to miss the opportunity to purchase a season ticket that admits them to these concerts.
    PCCA season subscribers also are admitted without charge to other area concert association appearances since PCCA reciprocates with several other concert associations.
    PCCA is a nonprofit association dedicated to bringing quality live musical entertainment to area audiences for an affordable price. All workers and board members are volunteers.
    Campaign workers will attempt to make a personal contact with all present subscribers as well as any new individuals who might be interested in buying a subscription.
    Out-of-town subscribers have the opportunity to buy their season subscriptions from their local PCCA campaign workers.
    Anyone may also contact campaign headquarters at Black's Law Office, 306 S. Oak in Pratt, (620) 672-5671. In addition, next year's season tickets will be on sale at the April 26 concert.
    PCCA concerts are held in Pratt Community College's Carpenter Auditorium.
    All concerts are contracted with Allied Concert Services, Inc.
