Judy Awe, campaign secretary for the association, said: "We are
very proud of the caliber of talent we can bring to our area and
still keep season ticket prices at a reasonable level. The continued
support of our membership allows us to offer four performances
locally. An exciting agreement with two other central Illinois
concert associations will allow us to attend full-season concerts in
Pekin and Pontiac with the price of a season membership."
The prices for season membership are $40 for adults, $20 for
students and $85 for a family membership, which includes two adults
and children living at home.
