As you can see, most Friday and Saturday evenings from June to October 4 are Destination Plattsmouth nights. 

 

As with last year, the Plattsmouth Main Street Association has developed a multicultural family venue for your listening / entertainment pleasure.  While there might be a change to something over the summer we expect changes to be very minor.  

 

Please come often, bring friends, and enjoy the free programs.

 

Please help us get the word out by using your Facebook and email contacts.

 

This year we will recognize a Cass County community or organization, as special guests, at each Saturday activity.

 

We ask you to actively support the many business sponsors who make this program possible.  Their banners will be posted at the Plaza stage.

On Sunday, May 12, at 2:30 PM, the Schoolhouse Performance Series presents "Drums of the World", with Michael Fitzsimmons, percussionist and award winning composer.  This concert will feature rare instruments from Switzerland called Hang – reminiscent of the steel drums of Trinidad.  Incorporating the Hang with over 30 years' experience as a composer and performer, Michael has spellbound audiences with the beautiful, other worldly sounds of these unique and intriguing instruments.  Michael is a solo artist with the Nebraska Arts Council's Touring Program, performing in schools, communities, and corporate settings. As a master teaching artist with University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Arts Are Basic, and a resident teaching artist with Nebraska Arts Council, Fitzsimmons provides programs for music and story as a way of learning at many regional schools.   Michael is a leader of full day music workshops with G.A.T.E.(Grief and the Arts Training Experience) for therapists, school teachers, hospital teams, and individual groups. He is a skilled performer of diverse percussion instruments including drums, African instruments, Mbira (thumb piano), Plains Indian flutes, Brazilian percussion flutes, various bamboo flutes.The concert will be followed by a drum circle.  Michael's drum circles are a "hit" with young and old alike!

The concert will be downstairs in the Old Avoca Schoolhouse, and  followed by light refreshments, and a chance to chat and even jam with the performers.  Avoca is in southern Cass County, Nebraska, on the 13 C Spur,  one mile south of Highway 34.  Admission is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for students and senior citizens, and $1.00 for children. Seating is limited.For more information, write to  Greenblatt & Seay, The Old Schoolhouse, P.O. Box 671, Avoca, Nebraska, 68307, or call 402-275-3221, or e-mail them at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The historic Old Avoca Schoolhouse was built in 1925, and has been the home of the Schoolhouse Performance Series since 1990.  Music lessons, workshops, fiddle camps, and field trips are offered by Schoolhouse residents, Greenblatt & Seay, and are available by appointment.
