“We are very excited to once again partner with Tim Scully’s World Class Jazz Productions to being these talented artists to our area for a series of free performances,” said LACA Executive Director Andrew Skinner.

“Part of the art center’s vision is to foster a community where arts and culture bring us together, feed the creative spirit and fuel community growth, and this series does just that!” Skinner said. “What could be better than gathering with new and old friends on the lush grass of Waterfront Park and listening to world renowned musicians perform, while taking in a breathtaking sunset and the evening arrival of the S.S. Badger.
