Acclaimed recording pianist to perform Sunday

Mary Beth Carlson, acclaimed recording pianist and entertainer, will perform at 7 p.m. Sunday at the Gull Lake Conference Center at Grand View Lodge in Nisswa.

The concert will feature specially chosen songs from the 23 piano orchestral CDs she has produced and recorded, several of which have been distributed internationally.
