Lively Arts


The Lively Arts Series is nearly three decades strong and what an exciting journey it has been! Throughout the years, we’ve watched our community grow into what it is today – a passionate group of enthusiasts with a taste for exceptional world class performances.

The 2015-2016 Lively Arts Series is more exhilarating than ever before, and perfectly captures our vision. We will present a diverse selection of both established and emerging artists that includes Jazz, African Jazz, classically tinged hip-hop, folk, blues-rock, and Shakespearean tragedy. We invite you to become acquainted with new experiences this year and to take advantage of our most expansive lineup yet.
