The "Season Ticket" category has been renamed "Websites & Brochures" for a quick way to link to a group's website for general information or find out how to get a brochure. Your group not listed? Send your website and phone number to email@example.com
To submit news, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Look for the words New Listing to locate first time announcements under each heading. By the way, MMAC's first concert in the fall series is on the Arts Alliance calendar under ethnic ev ents.
If you, or someone you know, has been recognized in a special way for his or her artistic accomplishments, send the details in an email. We like to recognize local artists and performers with a virtual pat on the back.
(Ed Note: maybe just the place for Judy and Pamela to send something about their publishing coups)
