The 70th Season of the Greater Alton Concert Association (GACA) continues on March 6th with New Odyssey. Three talented musicians perform outstanding arrangements of almost every musical style on 30 different instruments. The secret to this band’s success is their ability to adapt to every audience, and that’s why they’ve lasted over twenty years.

Using the latest technology and equipment, the group is constantly updating their material and creating timeless musical compositions that surprise and delight their audiences. New Odyssey incorporates versatile dance music spanning over five decades, which makes them a must-see group for all ages. With a unique combination of great music, audience participation, and sheer zaniness, mayhem can ensue at any moment.

This and all GACA shows are on Sunday afternoons at 3pm. Please note that while Hatheway Hall is under construction, all concerts will be held in the Commons at the Science & Technology Building on the campus of Lewis & Clark Community College: 5800 Godfrey Road—Godfrey, IL 62035.
