It's no secret — Craig and Moffat County is a small community. As such, there are limited offerings in some areas.

One of those is cultural opportunities that enrich the lives of our residents and provide an entertaining outlet.

That's where the Craig Concert Association comes in.

The organization is preparing for the 2011-12 season with Sunday night's concert by an act some may recognize.

Street Corner Symphony, a group from Nashville, Tenn., is slated to perform at 7 p.m. at the Moffat County High School auditorium, 900 Finley Lane.

The a cappella band rose to national prominence last year when they appeared on NBC's competition, "The Sing Off." The group, which includes six performers, earned second place on the show.

It's not often our community draws acts that have such national name recognition.

The Craig Daily Press encourages residents to give Sunday night's performance a chance, and also support the concert association in its continuing effort to serve local audiences.

Given the reasonable prices and variety of acts booked for this season, the concert association is a family-friendly opportunity for our community that should be embraced so it can be sustained and potentially grow.

Without support, this can't happen.

Tickets, which are available at Bank of Colorado and the Craig Chamber of Commerce, cost $20 for adults or $10 for students for individual shows. For all five shows scheduled, the cost is $35 for adults, $10 for students, or $80 for a family.

Give the concert association a chance this season.

We believe the reward of an entertaining evening in a community environment is well worth the small price.
