To the delight of local audiences, Cleveland’s Burning River Brass will return in December to perform their annual Christmas concert presented by the Musical Arts Series in Port Clinton in honor of Earl E. Warnke.
Due to popular demand, this year’s performance will be given twice on Monday, Dec. 20 at 3 p.m. and at 7 p.m. This free concert is presented as a gift to the community by the Musical Arts Series of Port Clinton, as thanks for nearly 20 years of tremendous support by sponsors and audiences.
Sponsors for the concert are the Harry Stensen Memorial Fund and Crown Battery.
Though the concert is free, tickets are required. They may be obtained by sending a stamped, self-addressed envelope to Christmas Concert, 668 E. Rohde Dr., Port Clinton 43452. Up to four tickets may be requested and concert time should be indicated.
An upcoming ad in The Beacon provides a convenient ticket request form.
This year, necessary changes have been made to the venue and audience procedures. The concert will be held at the Port Clinton High School Performing Arts Center, 841 Jefferson St. to allow adequate social distancing among the audience.
Approximately 350 tickets are allotted for each concert, 100 more than for past concerts. The Performing Arts Center also provides more than adequate parking for the audience, solving a problem encountered at previous concerts.
The Burning River Brass requires concertgoers to be checked for full proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test made Dec. 18 or later before entering the Performing Arts Center. Please bring these documents with you. A mask must be worn at all times and social distancing should be observed. The performers and Musical Arts Committee will also follow these procedures.
