The River Cities Concert Association (RCCA) and the Brown County Civic Concert Association (BCCCA) have united in a special reciprocity program. Each person who purchases a membership with the RCCA or the BCCCA can attend one of the other group’s concerts for free.

RCCA will hold four concerts this year: Dallas String Quartet, Nov. 5; Leon Williams Sings “Noel” Baritone Voice Christmas Show, Nov. 29; Boston Brass, April 5; and The Jersey Tenors, May 6. All concerts are held at Blesch Auditorium, Menominee, at 7 p.m. When people purchase a membership with RCCA, the tickets will include a letter on how to reserve a seat for free for a BCCCA performance.

The BCCCA concerts will include: Cantus, a 8-male acappella vocal group, Nov. 10; Siberian Virtuosi, 11 violins and a piano, March 22; and Janoska, a string trio and piano, April 4. More information about the BCCA concerts can be found on their website at
