Vilar Performing Arts Center Presents Intimate Jazz Performances

Live in the May Gallery

This summer, the Vilar Performing Arts Center (VPAC) is set to enrich its artistic offerings with the introduction of “Live in the May Gallery.” This new initiative brings a series of live performances to the intimate and contemporary setting of the May Gallery, the VPAC’s private lounge and art gallery.

The May Gallery will host an array of distinguished performers from around the world, featuring a rich tapestry of acoustic music that spans genres such as jazz, classical and folk. These performances are designed to be enjoyed in a salon or club-like atmosphere, providing a unique and close-up musical experience.

Owen Hutchinson, the VPAC artist director, shared his enthusiasm for the new series, noting, “There’s nothing like going to the theater, especially when the venue offers the comfort, beauty and first-rate quality of artists that we enjoy here at the Vilar Performing Arts Center.”

“I’ve handpicked artists like the Bob Reynolds Group and Okan,” Hutchinson adds, “who bring not only expertise in their musical styles but also a warmth and fantastic musicianship that fill the room.”
