PAAL, the Performing Arts Association of Linthicum, has announced the concert schedule for its upcoming season.

Performers include the Annapolis Chamber Orchestra on Sept. 26; the Veloshky Ukrainian Dance Ensemble on Nov. 21; acclaimed local pianist Doug Keegan on Feb. 27; and the Barry Dove Jazz Sextet on March 27.

The concerts will begin at 8 p.m. at North County High School.

The final concert of the season is a favorite of PAAL subscribers -- the Edinburgh Quartet. The quartet will perform at 6 p.m. May 2 at the Linthicum Heights United Methodist Church.

There's still time to subscribe; season tickets are $20. Parking is free and plentiful at both locations. Both facilities are handicapped-accessible. PAAL will provide assistance to the hearing-impaired at the school.

The PAAL concerts are sponsored by the Anne Arundel County Commission on Culture and the Arts and the Maryland State Arts Council.
