Andrusco returning for fall concert

    After filling all of the seats in the Townshend Theatre back in March, 2006, pianist Billy Andrusco will be returning here for a fundraiser concert on Thursday, Oct. 11 at 7:30 p.m.    “It’s going to be a dual fundraiser for the Fort Frances Curling Club and the Fort Frances Public Library’s ‘Building for the Future’ campaign,” concert organizer Bill Gushulak noted yesterday.    Gushulak also helped put together Andrusco’s concert here last March—a fundraiser for the curling club.    “He’s back by popular demand,” he added. “The last time he was here, we sold out and we had a number of people who were disappointed they couldn’t attend.    “We encourage people to not procrastinate and get their tickets soon.”    Starting this week, concert tickets are available for $25 each at Fort Frances General Supply and the Fort Frances Public Library (they may be available at additional locations in coming weeks, noted Gushulak).    A friend of Andrusco’s, Gushulak said he’s surely not the only one excited to see the talented and well-known Fort Frances native back here tickling the ivories.    “Last time, it was a tremendous success. A lot of people had said it was the best show they’d seen,” Gushulak noted. “That was why we encouraged him to come back again.    “He was happy to take part.”    “We’re very excited about being associated with the curling club on this endeavour,” said Mark Kowalchuk, who chairs the “Building for the Future” campaign.    “It was very successful for the curling club last time Billy performed, and we’re excited to have him back for a return engagement, especially for two great causes in the community.    “The curling club and the library are two great institutions in Fort Frances, and this concert will certainly benefit everyone in the community and the district,” Kowalchuk added.    For those not aware, Andrusco is a multi-talented musician with 40 years of experience playing piano, composing, teaching, performing, and producing.    He spends time performing at resorts and on cruise ships—that is, when he’s not playing golf in Arizona.
