HANNIBAL, Mo. — The Riedel Foundation has announced a $5,000 grant award to the Hannibal Concert Association. The money will help the HCA in the 2022-23 season to cover performance fees and establish master classes with local youth for string and jazz programs.

The Concert Association is building up its student pass program to provide free tickets to select Hannibal students and an accompanying adult. In a press release, HCA president Sara Anton North said, “Our goal is to encourage attendance through youth and families, and in some instances, to provide a first-ever concert experience.”

The Riedel Foundation is a long-time supporter of the Hannibal Concert Association. In the last 10 years, the HCA has received more than $25,000 in grants for concerts, master classes and an after-school music program.

The next performance by the HCA will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Roland Fine Arts Center. The performance will feature Holy Rocka Rollaz, a Minnesota band that plays classic early rock and roll from artists like Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry and Johnny Cash.

Tickets will be available at the door or at hannibalconcerts.com.
