The PC Community Band will perform sounds of the season under the direction of conductor Jim Edwards.

Leavenworth's Cody Choraliers have been entertaining folks with a cappella harmony in the Barbershop style for nearly 50 years. In April, under the direction of Lucas Pherigo, the Choraliers won the Central States Distict small chorus championship in Omaha, Nebraska.  In addition to the chorus, the chapter has several quartets that entertain local audiences and compete in barbershop contests.  Singing jazz, spiritual, patriotic, pop, and Christmas holiday tunes, the Choraliers harmonize and blend their voices to bring a song to the hearts of their listeners.

The Platte City Friends of the Arts Visual Arts Committee and the City of Platte City are sharing the work of local artist Linda Cohen at City Hall during the month of June.

The City of Platte City installed an art display system in the lobby of City Hall in order to entertain visitors and showcase area artists while open. 

“We are fortunate and grateful our Mayor and City Hall appreciate and support the local arts in this manner.” said Susan Anderson, Platte City Friends of the Arts Chairperson.

Linda Cohen, a freelance artist, provides a wide range of artistic services at her shop, Cohen’s Art and Framing on Main Street. She works with many different types of mediums, including watercolors, pencil, pen, ink, oils, pastels, airbrushing, and graphic design. She offers art classes and framing services and recently produced the Platte City Art Walk.

Platte City Friends of the Arts Visual Arts Committee Chairperson Debra Brechbiel is a big fan of Linda’s work. “Linda’s art and art services are a special thing for Platte City. She is so well rounded as an artist that you are certain to find something in common with her and her amazing skills,” stated Brechbiel.
