Dear Editor,

Things are starting to gear up for the coming school year. Schools and teachers are making plans for a terrific fall, sports schedules are ready to go, and families are looking forward to the newness of the new school year.

With all the “busy-ness,” it is easy to forget to do things TOGETHER as a family. Albert Lea Civic Music concerts are for FAMILIES! And -— what a deal it is! A family season ticket to the upcoming 2023-2024 season is only $105.

The performances range from folk, to jazz, to classical and include such a variety of instruments: guitar, saxophone, piano, violin, trumpet, and voices.

The concert series kicks off in fall with the Folk Legacy Trio (Oct. 2) and Charlie Albright, pianist (Nov. 12). On Feb. 9, Yu and I will treat you to the sounds of a guitar/violin duo, followed by the Sinta Quartet of saxophones on Mar. 5. Brassfire, featuring world-renowned trumpeter, Jens Lindemann, will complete the season on May 21. All concerts are held at Albert Lea High School auditorium.
