Prepare for an evening that’s part Vegas, part Pops, and all Fabulous as the Concord Community Concert Association opens its 93rd Spring Season Saturday, March 16, at 7:30 p.m., at Concord City Auditorium with Mia Vassilev, the internationally acclaimed piano virtuosa turning the keyboard into a springboard for an exciting crossover show.

Mia Vassilev and Company’s ensemble adds percussion and dance to her dynamic performance style, all presented in unique multi-media sets. A crossover keyboard artist, she delights audiences of all ages and musical preferences. Imagine a Metropolitan Opera accompanist and New World Symphony fellow crossing over to boogie-woogie and R&R – that’s Mia Vassilev. Her current tour plans concerts from Arizona to Bulgaria – and Concord, NH, at the Audi March 16.

The capital city’s oldest music series, the Concord Community Concert Association has presented outstanding professional artists in concert on the Audi stage since 1930. Three public school music teachers, worried that the Great Depression was ending Concord’s strong musical heritage, formed the CCCA in conjunction with a national Columbia Artists program to provide work for its roster of musicians. The first season offered three concerts for a $3 season ticket, and all children admitted at no cost. Now in year 93, the all-volunteer CCCA offers five concerts for a $60 season ticket and still welcomes students at no cost. As the founders planned, families are able to attend these affordable concerts together, introducing their youngsters to a lifetime of music.

The CCCA season finale concert on Saturday, April 13, headlines William Florian, the legendary minstrel of the 60s and 70s.

Single $20 tickets (Youth to 18 free) and information are available at ccca-audi.org and at the door 90 minutes before show time. For information and reservations, please call 603-344-4747.
