"We cater to all different types of musical entertainment," said Robin
Winkelstein, Glendale Community Concerts Assn. president. "Each one of
the attactions that we have is of the highest professional quality. Many
of the attractions consist of many performers because the audience likes
to see more than one person on the stage."
Admission to the concerts is by membership only. Glendale Community
Concerts Assn. is a nonprofit group that is part of a national network
made up of 600 units, with a parent company in New York that arranges the
entertainment, Winkelstein said.
Through reciprocity arrangements with other concert associations,
Glendale members can attend concerts presented by neighboring Community
Concert associations at no additional charge, depending on seat
availability. Schedules come with the membership packet.
Volunteer workers and the Patron Plan of donations make it possible to
present professional artists at a reasonable cost to members.
The local association has brought professional entertainment to
Glendale for 48 years.
Concerts are at 2:30 p.m. Sundays in the Glendale High School
Auditorium, 1440 E. Broadway, Glendale. Adult membership for the season
