HACA to present The Patsy Cline Project
The final concert of the HACA season will be The Patsy Cline Project, presented by Lisa Brokop, on Thursday, March 16, 2023 at 7:30 p.m. at Huron High School Auditorium.
Singer-songwriter Lisa Brokop is Canadian born but she now lives in Nashville. Her Patsy Cline Project was created in 2016 and includes hits of Patsy Cline as well as a few originals by Lisa Brokop. You are sure to be entertained with a rich, warm voice and a friendly, relaxed stage presence by Lisa and her band.
For the first time, HACA will showcase young local talent by listening to Gracee Thompson at 7:20 p.m. Thompson performed at Carnegie Hall in New York City after receiving an automatic nomination to audition based off her musical achievements being recognized from a music organization in Nevada. She was one of 500 selected out of 10,000 applicants. Her parents are Michelle Hohn, Ray Polfus and the late Kyle Thompson.
Also for the first time, you will be able to purchase your membership for the 2023-2024 season that night. Cash, check and credit cards will be accepted for membership payment. All patrons who purchase their membership on March 16 will be invited to an invitation-only reception prior to the first concert next season.
Next year’s line-up is being negotiated. HACA hopes to have four total concerts: “Phat Cat Swinger” (in the fall) — a “little-big” 11 piece band that specializes in high-energy music; “Jason Lyle Black” (in late fall) — an award winning piano showman who takes the audience on a journey through various musical styles; “Empire Trio” (in the winter) — beloved songs from the world of film from the 1930s to the mid-1990s; and “7,000 Miles to Broadway” (in the spring) — a Tony Award nominee Robert Spencer entertains you with a musical journey. Again, these concerts are in the works and are subject to change.
HACA is a volunteer organization whose mission is to cultivate interest in music, provide a variety of concerts in the Huron area and build a permanent concert audience. If you would like to get involved, please call Emma at 605 353 4939.
