|The North Platte Concert
Association has been bringing the Performing Arts to North Platte for
over sixty years. The "Greater Artist Series" was organized in the late
1930's by a group of North Platte residents who appreciated the
performing arts and dreamed of the opportunity to experience them in

Music Association," the "North Platte Community Concert Association,"
and now the North Platte Concert Association.

Russian Quattro was formed by two members of the fabulous Rastrelli Cello Quartet--Kira Kraftzoff and Sergio Drabkin. Along with Michael Makarov and Vladislav Pesin, the group produces a sound like a string quartet, but it will involve improvisation and technical abilities by the two new violinists that would exceed the usual string quartet sound. Their widely varied program mixes works by Tchaikovsky, Bach, and Dvorak to George Gershwin, David Brubeck,and Glenn Miller. they have been described as sounding like symphonic musicians one moment and they they will be playing ragtime,jazz or polka the next. This is a program that truly provides something for everyone!

A Tribute to the King ~ ~ Tuesday May 9, 2017 7:30 pm
Travis LeDoyt was born in the late 1970's, and it was evident at an early age that he seemed destined to entertain. Growing up Travis was exposed to a broad variety of musical styles and before long he was writing his own songs. Over the years he has developed into a truly remarkable talent,singer, song writer, performer and musician, but most of all he is fast becoming one of america's most convincing jaw-dropping Elvis tribute act ever to grace the stage. travis flawlessly captures the essence of elvis in his prime, presenting the hits ad ambiance of 1954-1959. Remember the classic Elvis tunes "Hound dog","Love Me Tender", "All Shook Up", "Blue Suede Shoes" and many more? You'll hear them all!
