Upper and Middle Keys lovers of classical music and swing are to enjoy a treat as toe-tapping music from the King of Swing, Artie Shaw’s Orchestra, starts off the Florida Keys Concert Association’s series today Tuesday, Jan. 21, in Islamorada. Music lovers may want to save the next five Monday nights if you live in the Middle Keys and the next five Tuesdays if you live in the Upper Keys for four more quality classical music concerts and one special jazz trio also in the concert series.

Classical music fans have five weeks in a row to enjoy concerts ranging from young rising star pianist, 16-year-old Adria Ye on Jan. 27 and 28, to the world class Alexander String Quartet performing Beethoven Feb. 3 and 4, to another brilliant pianist, Soo-Yeon Ham Feb. 10 and 11, to the world famous Trio Solisti Feb 17 and 18, and concluding with the Jazz Arts Trio led by returning favorite Fred Moyer Feb. 24 and 25.

On Monday nights, the concerts are to be performed in Marathon at the San Pablo Church (mile marker 52). and on Tuesday nights in Islamorada at the comfortable Island Community Church (MM 83.3). All concerts start at 7:30 p.m.

Season tickets are still on sale until the close of the second concert. The Florida Keys Concert Association, a non-profit volunteer group, works all year to make this series happen. Thanks to individual and business contributors, ticket prices are kept low. Considering that single tickets to the next five concerts are $25, five concerts for $95 is a bargain. Tickets can be purchased at the Key Largo Art Gallery (MM 103), Artamorada Gallery at The Rain Barrel (MM 86.9) and at Centennial Bank in Marathon. Tickets can also be purchased at the door.
