“Northern Lights Concert Association provides a variety of cultural experiences that are not normally available to small communities in a rural area. This may range from a classical piano, violin, flute trio to steel drums from the Caribbean, to Chinese acrobats, to a musical comedy. The purpose is to stretch the audience through entertainment to new experiences they do not normally encounter, expose students to artists and virtuoso performers, and provide in-school classes and programs when possible.”
