The con­cert is being pre­sented by In Mid Air Pro­duc­tions.
From the press release: “In Feb­ru­ary we think of of Valentine’s Day, with its cel­e­bra­tion of flir­ta­tion, love, and romance. But it is also a cold, bar­ren time, and so In Mid Air Pro­duc­tions offers up a twist, pay­ing trib­ute to love gone wrong in ¬†“Amid the Blind­ing Snow.”
The con­cert will also fea­ture music by Robert Butts and Kevin McCarter.
