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. 
Announcing the 2015-2016 Season
All Concerts will be held at the Neville Center for Performing Arts unless otherwise stated
