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 our community.

From that original organization, the association evolved to the "Civic Music Association," the "North Platte Community Concert Association," and now the North Platte Concert Association. 

It is the mission of the North Platte Concert Association to provide the performing arts and arts based educational experiences to the community of North Platte and the surrounding area.

The Limeliters  ~ ~  Thursday, October 9th, 2014 7:00 p.m. 
For 50 years The Limeliters have entertained standing-room-only crowds with their incredible musical talent and zany sense of humor. They first made their mark in folk clubs and on college campuses during the height of the folk music boom of the early 60s, which led to numerous TV appearances. With their energy and enthusiasm undiminished and undaunted, current members Gaylan Taylor, Andy Corwin and Don Marovich remain as exciting an act as the genre has produced. They continue the tradition of surging vocals, thrilling harmony, and whacked out sense of humor that the trio has always been known for!
The sponsor of this concert is Great Western Bank.
