Hannibal Concert Association announces schedule of five concerts for 2023-24 season
HANNIBAL, Mo. — The Hannibal Concert Association kicks off its 2023-2024 concert season on Sept. 15.
The HCA has brought a variety of world-class performances to the Hannibal area since 1945. The upcoming season is comprised of a variety of styles and acts with Las Vegas divas, a Karen Carpenter tribute, a British-style brass band, a violin and classical guitar duo and American Idol/America’s Got Talent alums.
Divas 3 will kick off the 2023-24 concert season at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 15, at the HLGU Roland Fine Arts Center. Divas 3 has powerhouse voices who will sing the biggest hits of the greatest divas in music history. This vibrant show spans four decades covering the 1960s through the 1990s with hits by Aretha Franklin, Carole King, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Cher, Dolly Parton, Donna Summer, ABBA and more.
Yesterday Once More was a hit song for The Carpenters from their 1973 album “Now & Then.” The lyrics thoughtfully reminisce about songs of the past and the memories brought forth from hearing them. Joanne O’Brien and her velvety voice bring the sounds of the 1970s through the music of Karen Carpenter, and the sounds that inspired so many, at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 28, at Calvary Baptist Church, 4605 W. Ely Road.
Back in Hannibal for the third time in recent years, Fountain City Brass Band will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 15, at the HLGU Roland Fine Arts Center. FCBB is a 30-piece brass and percussion ensemble from Kansas City. It has won the North American Brass Band Championships, U.S. Open Brass Band Championships and became the first American band ever, and the first non-UK band in more than 50 years, to win a major brass band competition on British soil at the Scottish Open Brass Band Championships.
Violin and classical guitar duo, YU & I, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 15, at Calvary Baptist Church. YuEun Kim and Ines Thomé met when they both had just moved to the U.S. YuEun from Korea and Ines from Germany serendipitously found themselves as housemates in Los Angeles, both studying at USC’s Thornton School of Music.
