To the Editor:
The Norwood Village Green Concert Series will put the 44th annual season to a complete rest when it ties up some loose ends with a performance of the Taffeta Girls on Friday, November 3 at 7 pm. The concert will be held in the Norwood-Norfolk Auditorium.
The series personnel and school district personnel are diligently working on learning to use the newly installed state-of-the-art sound and lighting system. This event will be the first time the system will be put to use in concert.
Why the loose ends? Hundreds of audience members were turned away from the Taffeta Girls performance this past summer when the concert had to be held in the Norwood Municipal Building due to inclement weather.
At the time, a commitment was made to redo the concert in the fall at NNCS so that those audience members and others could enjoy these three very talented local women and the four local and equally talented accompanying musicians.
I urge members of the wider community to buy tickets to this concert and support these talented performers while at the same time support the Norwood-Village Green Concert Series effort to give the community something enjoyable and family oriented during its off-season.
I further urge the members of the Norwood-Norfolk community to purchase tickets and enjoy your auditorium and school facilities along with this offering by the concert series. Let’s use the term the school uses “Flyer Pride”.
Advance tickets at reduced prices are available at various outlets including Brick and Mortar and Northern Ice and Dance in Potsdam, Perry’s Market and the Hometown Café in Norwood, and Main Street Market in Madrid. Tickets at full price will be available at the door.
For further ticket information peruse the series website: nvgcs.org or see the many posters distributed.
On another note the series 2018 season, its 45th Anniversary Season has been programmed, and soon after November 3rd announcements and pronouncements will be forthcoming.
As usual, there will be some blockbusters. Your continuing support is appreciated.
