Lockhart returns to the Merrimack Valley for NECC fundraiser

Save the date to see Keith Lockhart and Friends on Saturday, Sept. 28, at 7:30 p.m. at the Collins Center for the Performing Arts at Andover High School in Andover. This event is presented by the Northern Essex Community College Foundation, Inc., the Women of NECC, and the NECC Alumni Association. Proceeds from this NECC signature event will benefit NECC’s Endowment Fund.

Lockhart will present a talk on composer Igor Stravinsky’s “The Soldier’s Tale,” illustrated by periodic interludes of music performed by a group of seven musicians. The 1918 theatrical Russian parable meant to be “read, played, and danced” tells the tale of a soldier who trades his fiddle to the devil for a book that predicts the future of the economy.

This is a return visit to the Merrimack Valley for the 53-year-old New York native.

Tickets are on sale for $35 each. For tickets, call the NECC Institutional Advancement events line at 978-556-3870 or visit www.mvarts.info. For more information or to request communication access, visit www.necc.mass.edu/signature-event. Discounts are available for students and groups.
