Plans finalized for annual Tyrone-Snyder Public Library fundraising concert

The Tyrone-Snyder Public Library’s annual fund raising concert has been finalized, according to concert chairman, Chuck Banas.
“We have signed our final act that we have been trying to get for this year’s show. Our concert this year will feature five opening acts prior to this year’s star show stoppers The Drifters,” said Banas.
The show is set for Saturday evening, March 25 at the Tyrone Area High School auditorium at 7 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. All seating is reserved with the cost of the tickets set at $30 per person.
“Ticket sales have been extraordinary up to this point,” added Banas.
The Drifters placed the concert information on their web page in late November, and library officials indicated that they have had a steady flow of telephone calls requesting tickets. The calls were so numerous that library officials decided to open up the local ticket sales prior to Christmas rather than wait until after the first of the year, which was the original plan.
“By the end of November, I had calls and ticket orders for over 20 tickets and they were from Pittsburgh, Monroeville and Uniontown. The calls and ticket orders continued to come in each day thereafter, and we thought we had better get the tickets available here in town and to our corporate sponsors,” Banas said.
Tickets are now on sale at Bressler’s Mini Mart and Sports, Kopp Drug and the Tyrone-Snyder Public Library. Tickets and concert information are available through the mail by calling 684-7929.
This concert idea started out as a project for the library to raise the funds needed to support the mortgage payments on the new library located in downtown Tyrone. Even though this is still the main goal of these annual concerts, the concerts have turned into an event that the entire community looks forward to as they have grown in popularity and professionalism, according to Banas.
Banas added, “I am totally thrilled with the response and the enthusiasm that the community shows each year. With well over 300 tickets sold, two-and-a-half months before the show and many corporate sponsors to contact, this year’s should be an outstanding evening.”
Additional information and highlights on each of the six acts that will be showcased will be featured in future additions of The Daily Herald.
