He envisioned an evening of classical music highlighting musicians from across the country and even the world. Now in its third year, the LMAC is intriguing many other musicians who want to visit and play in this wonderful place—the Old Art Building in Leland. Dr. Ramli’s vision is now a reality. Music will feature works by Music by Bach, Beethoven Mozart, Shultz. Tickets for the event are $20 and are available at MyNorthTickets.com or call 231-256-2131.
