The Austin Area Commission for the Arts presents three fantastic events this coming week.

Our week of entertainment kicks off at the Hormel Historic Home (HHH) hosting the Koo Koo Kanga Roo Band at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday in their outdoor garden area. The concert is free and will take place at the Historic Paramount Theatre if it is raining.

Then, at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, at the Historic Paramount Theatre, we are hosting the official unveiling of the 1928 Mason and Hamline piano that was generously donated to the HHH by MarySue Hormel Harris. HHH is allowing the Austin Area Commission for the Arts to use the piano for our events.
