Lockhart returns to Merrimack Valley: There is still time to buy tickets to see Keith Lockhart and Friends on Sept. 28 at 7:30 p.m. at the Collins Center for the Performing Arts at Andover High School in Andover.

The event is presented by the Northern Essex Community College Foundation Inc., the Women of NECC and the NECC Alumni Association. Proceeds will benefit NECC’s Endowment Fund.

Lockhart will present a talk on composer Igor Stravinsky’s “The Soldier’s Tale,” illustrated by periodic interludes of music performed by a group of seven musicians. The 1918 theatrical Russian parable meant to be “read, played, and danced” tells the tale of a soldier who trades his fiddle to the devil for a book that predicts the future of the economy.
