Marilyn Maye Concert postponed at Pearson Lakes Art Center 

The Pearson Lakes Art Center has announced that the Marilyn Maye performance scheduled for August 11 has been postponed.  

Executive Director Bob Kirschbaum explains.  "She was really excited about performing here, and then last week we talked and, of course, Marilyn brings an entourage of people in from all over the United States to play with her and, with Iowa being high on the scale for COVID-19, when people come to Iowa, when they fly back to the state that they came from, they would have to quarantine for 14 days.  So, her band, they aren't able to perform, and so we had to postpone the concert for this year at this time with Marilyn."

He notes that the legendary singer may be making an appearance as a special guest at the Celebrate the Arts event on August 9.  "The exciting news is, Marilyn loves coming to Okoboji, and at this time, she's still scheduled to be a special guest at our Celebrate the Arts on the 9th, and then, one of our auction items is dinner with Marilyn at The Inn Hotel, so that's going to be a great auction item, and a great time for fans of Marilyn to be able to visit with her."
