HANNIBAL, Mo. — The Hannibal Concert Association’s third concert of its 2023-2024 concert season is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 19. Joanne O’Brien will present a Karen Carpenter tribute show titled “Yesterday Once More” beginning at 7:30 p.m. at the Roland Fine Arts Center’s Parker Theater on the campus of HLGU, 2800 Palmyra Road.

“Yesterday Once More” was a hit song for The Carpenters from their 1973 album “Now and Then.” The lyrics thoughtfully reminisce about songs of the past and the memories brought forth from hearing them. O’Brien brings the sounds of the 1970s through the music of Carpenter. Through a cavalcade of classics, O’Brien illuminates the musical diversity, pop culture and political climate of that time in history.
