You know how NMEAC was planning to host a three-band concert at Milliken Auditorium on November 14? So many folks are planning to attend, the show’s moving to the historic City Opera House.

The 7:00 p.m. concert promises to be a fun-filled evening of great music for a vital cause, the Northern Michigan Environmental Action Council’s Environmental Legacy Fund, which will provide financial resources NMEAC and regional partner organizations need to address growing threats to the North’s water, air, wildlife and economy. The concert will include Benzie County’s Song of the Lakes, folksinger Robin Lee Berry & Friends, and the exciting new band, Phenomenal Head.
