Talented pianist and gifted composer, Hunter Peeters returns on March 13, playing many of his own arrangements and compositions.

The series concludes on March 20 with The Maple Beats, featuring Terri Crawford, Rick Johnson and Randy Read performing Beatles music. Each with an extensive background as professional entertainers they started The Maple Beats after playing a series of shows to benefit Flato Academy Theatre here in Lindsay.
