The Kearney Concert Association has been an essential central Nebraska resource for premiere performances, quality musical entertainment, educational outreach, and cultural enhancement.
The Association began as part of Community Concerts. As an affiliate, Kearney enjoyed such artists as the Shaw Chorale, Vienna Boys Choir, Arthur Fiedler with the Buffalo Philharmonic, Fred Waring, Paul Lavalle, Robert Merrill, Norman Luboff Choir, New Christy Minstrels, Roger Wagner Chorale, George Shearing Quintet, the Young Americans, the Four Freshman, Empire Brass, Johnny Mann Singers & Dancers, Glen Miller Orchestra and numerous ballet companies. 2002 marked the end of Community Concerts and the beginning of the Kearney Concert Associaiton. The Association has since incorporated and become a non-profit organization.
Though classical artists remain an integral part of our series, offerings have expanded to include jazz, pop, dance and musical theater. The concerts continue to be of highest quality, an essential mix of renowned artists and young performers on their way to prominence.
