PLYMOUTH — The New Hampshire Music Festival is pleased to announce that it will be working with Lakes Region Airport Shuttle Service LLC as the exclusive transportation sponsor for its 2015 season. The company will be providing airport shuttle service for musicians and staff as well as transportation to and from concerts and special events for ticket holders.
Lakes Region Airport Shuttle Service LLC (LRASS) offers service to Manchester Regional, Boston Logan, Black Falcon Pier and South Station as well as local charter service for special events, weddings, corporate travel and school functions. Don St. Gelais, owner of LRASS, has had a relationship with the New Hampshire Music Festival (NHMF) for almost 10 years.
"Back when we were just starting the company, the NHMF was one of our first clients. We were helping to transport their guests to and from the airport and our customer base began to grow as more of their patrons learned about our services. This is a great opportunity to create some unique concert night packages and bring a new element to their program."
Planning for the 2015 season of the NHMF is underway and includes core programming similar to past seasons as well as some new surprises that promise to delight audience members of all ages. Deb Kosits, Executive Director of the NHMF, is hoping to create more community partnerships such as the one with LRASS.
"We are thrilled to be working with LRASS and are excited for the possibilities this creates for both of our organizations. Our goal is to expand our reach and try to bring in people who may not have been to a concert before or encourage ticket holders to gather a group of friends and attend a performance together. We also hope to partner with more local businesses on other ideas that help draw visitors to the area and encourage investment in our community."
More details about the program will be announced shortly.
