Heidi Nelson, Executive Director of the Paradise Center for the Arts (PCA) told KDHL AM Minnesota listeners today they have lowered their prices for shows.

Nelson says with gas prices, food prices and most items seeing price increases they decided to lower their show prices so they remain affordable for people.

For example next Friday, April 22, 2022 Mick Sterling Presents Billy Joel with Strings.  Tickets will be $20 for non-members, $15 for members and $10 for students.

Sterling is a member of the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame.

Nelson pointed out with the mortgage paid off by the City of  Faribault and matching contributions from people throughout the region it put them in a position to be able to lower the prices at least currently.
