LANCASTER, Pa. - A few local musicians took part in "Random Acts of Music"-- a free concert series. The concert series was created by locally owned hearing treatment practice A&E Audiology and Hearing Aid Centers. The facility's goal is to use the events as a way of celebrating the gift of hearing while giving hope to those with hearing loss.

"We're using local artists and local venues and we want to be able to share the gift of music with everybody and celebrate being able to hear," said Dr. Kamal Elliot, the center's clinic director.

The first part of the series kicked off at Tellus360 in downtown Lancaster on Wednesday night. The concert featured local artists Austin Criswell and Adam Blessing for a night of unique acoustic music.

"By providing these pop-up concerts once a month we're really able to give the gift of music to Lancaster," said Meredith Noll, the facility's public relations director, "and what better way to celebrate the gift of hearing than with the gift of music?"

Concerts will be held each month at different locations throughout Lancaster County with a musician or band playing at various times throughout the day.
